Beaten Maradona to consider future

CAPE TOWN: Diego Maradona on Saturday indicated that he may quit as Argentina coach, but said he needed time to think about his future.

The former midfield maestro was devastated after seeing his team crushed 4-0 by Germany in the World Cup quarter-finals and said in his post-match press-conference that "I may leave tomorrow".

Pushed on whether he was quitting, Maradona appeared to backtrack.

"We will see what happens. I haven`t thought about leaving, I have to check with my family, with the players. There are a number of things I have to consider," said the 49-year-old.

Maradona, who retired from playing on his 37th birthday in 1997, was appointed coach in November 2008 after overcoming cocaine addiction.
