Calling it quits

Soon after the loss to Germany, Argentina’s coach announced his resignation. This is the man who previously led the under-20 team to three championships. How unnecessary.
If we had to resign everytime we lost an important pitch, the job market would be perpetually flooded. Only one team will win the World Cup. If Germany do win it, Argentina could argue they could have been second best (though Brazil would surely be a strong contender as well).
Argentina have already done much better this World Cup than in the previous one. Still a far cry from the Maradona days but surely the coach should be respected for what he has done for the nation. Argentina’s young players are full of promise and they will bounce back even harder in the next World Cup.
