Read of the Day: The Wardens Take Back the Asylum

Maradona’s Argentina squad will be the one to watch in South Africa — because it’s managed by the only man left in football who believes that talent outside of systems can carry the day. Even the 100-year reign of the player at Real Madrid has acceded to Mourinho’s “shit on a stick” approach, which takes advantage of the rigidity of youth academies and reserve systems and concentrates decision-making in the hands of the manager. “Real’s decision to acquire Mourinho is an admission of defeat.” (Richard Whittall/Pitch Invasion)
