Inter Milan icon Zanetti, whose record of 143 Argentina caps was only eclipsed at Russia 2018 by Javier Mascherano, has offered to work with the Argentinian FA after the national team's poor showing at the tournament.

El Diego was not impressed with the gesture, telling TyC Sports: "“He always offers to do everything.”

“They need an Inter President and he’s there first. A fitness coach is needed and he’s there. You need a player and he’s on the bench.

Maradona made 91 appearances for the Albiceleste, winning the 1986 World Cup. He was also coach of the team at the 2010 World Cup, where they lost 4-0 to Germany in the quarter-finals.
