Is Diego Maradona looking for a role in the Barclays Premiership?

Paul Smith by Paul Smith / 29 October 2010, 10:32

As he approaches his 50th birthday the former head coach of Argentina, Diego Maradona mentioned in an interview that was shown today on Sky Sports News that he would relish the opportunity to manage a team in the Barclays Premiership, he praised the excellent infrastructure and professionalism that the game has in England.

The big question is what team could a character as large as Diego Maradona fit in with in the Barclays Premiership. From what we witnessed during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa he very much enjoyed shouting instructions to his team from box and also punished players in training by having a ball kicked at their rears as they stood in the penalty box, so he could be a perfect replacement for Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United who also likes kicking objects at his star players.

Diegos firing squad

During his tenure at Argentina a lot was expected of his side that boasted many international stars like Lionel Messi and Carlos Tevez and they only managed to reach the quarter finals of the tournament, with than in mind he could be looked as a replacement for the troubled Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson who has failed to achieve with a host of international stars in his side.

In the interview he also claims that he was removed as manager from the national side even though he was offered new contract just days before, a story that most managers in the Premier League could tell!

If we were lucky enough to have the larger than life former Argentinean boss the possibilities of the players that he could attract are has influence over are mouth watering, although the likes of Messi, Tevez and Higuain will be out of most teams budgets.

He has been linked in the past with several sides recently including managing the national team for Mexico and he was even linked with being the next manager at Aston Villa but we are sure that even he has some standards!
