Argentinian nutball Diego Maradona has revealed that he is set to undergo a series of talks about taking over at an as-yet unnamed English side next month, with several sources in his homeland suggesting that Fulham are indeed the club in question.

Speaking during a trip to visit his daughter in Uruguay, Maradona told the local press:

“In February I will be travelling to England to listen to a formal proposal from a team from there who wants to talk to me. If they convince me I might accept the position. I’m not desperate, but I know that some day I’ll be the coach again of some team.”

If I know David Gold and David Sullivan, which I wholeheartedly don’t, I’d put a shiny pound coin on ‘El Diego’ taking over at West Ham in a few weeks time. Any thoughts?
