With the Argentine Football Federation set to make an announcement on Thursday regarding the future of who will lead the Albicelestes, Diego Armando Maradona might very well get the biggest 48th birthday present he could ever imagine.

Reports coming out of Argentina are starting to trickle out that the former Boca and Argentina legend (who has 91 caps and 34 goals to his tally) has edged out Carlos Bianchi, Miguel Angel Russo and Sergio Batista to nab one of the most difficult jobs in the world after Alfio Basile turned in his resignation following Argentina’s loss against Chile.

“I can’t open the present yet, we have to wait because we have to continue to talk,” the 1986 World Cup winner affirmed in declarations to radio La Red.

“I will choose the team, I will be the only one to do so. Of course I will be listening to Carlos (Bilardo) in everything, because you can’t avoid listening to a man who knows so much,” he added.
