After Argentina's historic 1-0 loss to Chile in last week's FIFA World Cup™ qualifier, Albiceleste coach Alfio Basile chose to relinquish his post. Now the hunt is on for a suitable successor, and wants to know who you would choose.

The legendary Diego Maradona has thrown his hat into the ring, but he lacks experience as a coach. Can his personal prestige and magnetism bring the best out of his troops regardless, as was the case with Maradona's contemporary Jurgen Klinsmann at Germany 2006?

One of Maradona's team-mates from that 1986 triumph, Sergio Batista, must be considered as well, after he led the Argentina Olympic side to gold in Beijing. Then there is Carlos Bianchi, the well-travelled coach who had such success with Boca Juniors, and the young Diego Simeone, who has already established his reputation with Estudiantes and River Plate.
