Argentine legend is confident of his ability to help Man Utd regain glory.
“If Man Utd needs a coach, I’m the right person. I know they sell shirts all over the world, but they also need to win the title. I can help them do that,” said Diego Maradona in FourFourTwo magazine.
Maradona is leading Dorados, the club of Mexico’s Second Division. He used to be Argentina’s coach (2008-2010), Al Wasl clubs, Fujairah (UAE), club president Dynamo Brest and assistant coach at Deportivo Riestra. But all faded.
The only thing Maradona can be proud of is his time in the competition. As the conductor, he helped Argentina win the 1986 World Cup, Napoli won two Serie A and an UEFA Cup (the predecessor of the Europa League).
Last season, Man Utd almost fell to the bottom in terms of achievement. The most successful team in the Premier League finishes the tournament in sixth place, meaning that they can only attend the Europa League next season. In the Champions League, they failed from the quarterfinals.
Maradona commented: “In Manchester, I like Ander Herrera. Back to Paul Pogba, I found him working hard not enough. I used to play at Old Trafford. It was a rowdy arena like La Bombonera – home of Boca Juniors “. The match at Old Trafford that “Golden Boy” mentioned took place in the Cup Cup quarterfinals in 1983-1984 season, when he was still wearing Barca shirt.
Besides Man Utd, Maradona also has feelings for Man City: “Man Utd is my favorite English football team for a long time. Under the guidance of former manager Alex Ferguson, they used to have a team and many bridges. However, right now, I have to talk about Man City, I know I shouldn’t change it but it’s for Kun Aguero, he’s playing for a great team.
