Two months ago, in mid-July, Diego Maradona was unveiled as the new chairman of Belorussian club Dinamo Brest while riding into town on a giant armoured truck.

It is now September, and the Argentinian has landed himself yet another new job title to add to the pile.

As of this week, Maradona is apparently the new manager of Mexican second division side Dorados de Sinaloa.

The Mexican club sacked former coach Francisco Gamez on Thursday after a wretched start to the season, and then announced Maradona’s arrival on the very same day.

However, according to local media, Maradona’s appointment might not be as finalised as Dorados would have us believe, given that he signed a three-year contract with Brest roughly eight weeks ago.

It is thought his involvement with Brest may prove to be a “sticking point” with league authorities from both countries.

As ever when it comes to El Diego and his globe-trotting, pocket-lining, CV-padding adventures, we shall see.

(P.S. If Dorados’ name seems familiar, it might be because they are the team Pep Guardiola spent a six-month stint with right at the very end of his career.)

    An Argentine Keith Richards who has immortality, but… working in such a drug and violence soaked place will surely mean his demise.
