Maradona Takes Up A Coaching Job…see the Club that hires him

World Cup and Argentina legend, Diego Maradona has been appointed as a coach of a second division team-Dorados in Mexico as it was stated on the club’s website on Thursday.

The club issued a short video on their social media channels with the messages ‘Welcome Diego’, and ‘Make it a 10’, the Argentina great’s shirt number as a player.

Although Dorados, who is based in Sinaloa state in northwest Mexico, gave no further details, Mexican newspapers said Maradona had been hired to replace Francisco Gamez.

Dorados fired Gamez earlier on Thursday after a poor start to the season that brought three points out of a possible 15. They are 13th in the 15-team league, joint bottom of the table.

The former Barcelona and Napoli forward captained Argentina to their second and last World Cup title in 1986.

But drug-addiction, overeating and alcoholism put a sharp end to an otherwise glorious career and in 2000 he nearly died following a cocaine overdose.

Maradona previously had short stints coaching clubs in Argentina and the United Arab Emirates but his longest spell in charge was with Argentina when he led the national team to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

He will be presented by Dorados this weekend and will debut as a coach on Sept. 15 when the club faces Cafetaleros de Tapachula
