In his latest video blog for Eurosport, Arsene Wenger runs the rule over Argentina coach Diego Maradona.

The Arsenal boss believes that, while the team clearly respect Maradona, the former World Cup winner is too closely connected to his team.

Wenger tells Eurosport's Soccer City show that Maradona needs to take a step back and stop the media hype that surrounds him from affecting the players when they take to the pitch.
