New Argentina coach Diego Maradona is keen to find the cause of the team's recent poor form when he takes charge for the first time against Scotland.

Maradona, who was officially unveiled as Alfio Basile's successor on Tuesday, will make his debut on the bench at Hampden Park on November 19.

"I want to see why the team have collected so many bad results recently. I want to know what they feel, what is happening to them," he told Fox Sports cable channel.

"We will start with four defenders (against Scotland), but we'll change according to each match.

"I will manage it with Carlos (Bilardo, general manager) and my assistants. It will depend on who we play against.

"We can play with three or four defenders depending on how we complete the squad. We can adapt some players in different positions. It depends on how we will plan the Scotland match."
