thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com invites the readers to weigh in on who should be appointed the new coach of global superpowers Argentina. Bianchi, Maradona, Russo, Batista - or someone else?

Alfio Basile left the albiceleste post eleven days ago, and the race is well and truly on to find his successor.

Four names have emerged as front-runners, namely Carlos Bianchi, Diego Armando Maradona, Miguel Angel Russo and Sergio Batista.

Of course, as AFA president Julio Grondona said, others are in with a chance, but these four are the leading pack.

Former Boca Juniors coach Bianchi is considered the favourite. A respected ex-striker, he hasn't worked since leaving Atlético Madrid in 2006, but remains a big name in his home country.

Maradona, who needs no introduction, is more accustomed to the TV presenter's desk than the manager's hotseat, but his standing in the Argentine game is second to none, and probably will be for all time.

Russo, a well-traveled 52 year old, is currently with San Lorenzo, but his managerial career has spanned his country and continent.

Then there's Batista, who led pre-tournament favourites Argentina U-23 to the Olympic Gold this summer after serving his time with a host of smaller domestic clubs.

What do you think? Which of these four, if any, should get the job? Click here to vote and we'll look at the results on Wednesday!
