Buenos Aires (Argentina), Sep 7(ANI): Argentina coach Diego Maradona, who faces the axe if his team fails to qualify for next year's World Cup in South Africa, has said that he will not quit rather he would "work hard like crazy".
The two-time World champions was beaten by South American rivals Brazil, and are currently fourth in their group, just two points ahead of Ecuador and Colombia.
"This won't break me. I will work hard like crazy. To lose to Brazil is always ugly. We were very motivated about winning and moving closer towards the World Cup. But now we can't sit back because qualifying will be tough," The Sun quoted Maradona, as saying.
Maradona further accepted to take the responsibility of defeat against Brazil, and said that Messi should not be blamed for it, as he wasn't the only on playing.
"I won't complain about my players, because I threw everything at Brazil. Unfortunately we just couldn't turn the game," he said.
Maradona also said that there was now huge pressure on the team ahead of the next qualifier, which will be played against Paraguay on Thursday. (ANI)
