Georgia on his mind
Diego Maradona (right) and Claudio Caniggia

Where: Central Stadium, Tbilisi, Georgia.

When: 25 October, 2008.

Who: Maradona and friends - including former Argentina team-mate Claudio Caniggia - played a team of Georgian veterans in a match organised by local businessman Nikoloz Patarkalishvili.

What he said: As he travelled to Georgia, Maradona's name was moving up the list of candidates to take over from Alfio Basile. El Diego would only say: "I would very much like to be the coach of Argentina, I will begin to get to know the players better! I don't know anything, it's just a dream."

That dream is now becoming a reality.
