BELO HORIZONTE — Argentine FA chief, Julio Grondona, and his son Humberto — coach of the youth national teams — celebrated the team’s victory over Iran yesterday and for both of them, it was possible after the “jinx” left the stadium, in reference to Diego Maradona.

“The jinx left and we won,” said Julio Grondona close to a group of journalist at the Maracanã stadium after the win.

Maradona, Argentina’s coach during the World Cup 2010 in South Africa and confronted with the Grondona family after his exit, went to the stadium with her daughter Giannina and left before Lionel Messi’s fantastic goal.

“When the jinx left...,” wrote Humberto Grondona on his twitter account before writing another that said: “Those who don’t want to see the national team win, don’t come again.”

After claiming he was blocked from watching his country play its World Cup opener, Maradona sat in the crowd for the match against Iran.

The 53-year-old former player, who captained Argentina to the 1986 World Cup title, has been one of FIFA’s fiercest and most regular critics. The sport’s governing body said that he simply didn’t have the proper credentials last Sunday.
