Argentina Legend Diego Maradona wants the job at United, claiming he can restore the club to its former glories

The 58 year old, who is celebrated as a  footballing legend, played for Boca Juniors, Barcelona and Napoli in his career and also took Argentina to the World Cup glory in 1986.

He is currently managing Mexican side Dorados de Sinaloa after spells in charge of Argentina, Al Wasl and Fujairah in UAE and, as chairman of Belorussian side Dynamo Brest in 2018.

Maradona managed the Argentina National Team from 2008 to 2010 taking the side till the quarter finals of World Cup 2010 in South Africa. They were knocked out by Germany with a 4-0 thrashing in the quarter finals, after which Maradona stepped down from his managerial job.

‘If Manchester [United] need a coach, I’m the man to do it,’ Maradona told FourFourTwo. ‘I know they sell lots of shirts around the world, but they need to win trophies, too. I can do that for them.’

The Argentine wasn’t all praises as he critized their star man, but picked out Ander Herrera as his favourite, who has departed for PSG leaving the Red devils.

‘With United I liked Ander Herrera,’ continued the Argentinian. ‘Paul Pogba? Doesn’t work hard enough.’

This clearly indicated that Maradona is not a big fan of the World cup winner Paul Pogba .

He also told about his love for the Old Trafford atmosphere and compared it to the famous atmosphere of  Boca Juniors stadium.

‘I played at Old Trafford [in the 1983/84 Cup Winners’ Cup quarter-final]. What noise, like La Bombonera.’

This clearly indicated that Maradona is not a big fan of the World cup winner Paul Pogba .

However, Maradona has been inclined towards Manchester’s other club City because of his links. Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero  used to be Maradona’s son-in-law and the 58-year-old paid close attention to the success achieved by those in the blue half of Manchester.

Aguero who was married to Gianna Maradona have a son together Benjamin , leading his ex father in law to be attached to his side.

‘Manchester United used to be my favourite English team for so long. So many great players and a great team under Alex Ferguson,’ he added.

‘But now I have to say Man City. I know you shouldn’t change like that but it’s because of Kun [Aguero]. We speak a lot and he plays in a very good team.’
