Diego Maradona, one of the greatest football player of all time, has declared his interest in serving as coach for the Moroccan National Soccer Team.
The retired Argentine professional footballer has served as a manager and coach at other clubs as well as the national team of Argentina.
The great soccer living legend made this public knowledge on Saturday before the Green March Anniversary gala match game in Laayoune city in the disputed territory of Western Sahara.
“I am ready to discuss any serious offer from Morocco to train here.”
While sharing his interest in the team, Maradona perhaps gives an insight why he wants to manage the national team.
He acknowledged that the team is not doing well and basically not reckoned as a strong team at the international level. He also noted how much of a struggle it will be for the team to efficiently host the 2026 World Cup. He said this because the infrastructures for it still need improvement.
Side by side to his negative observations, Maradona also expressed optimism that the team could still make it to the 2018 world cup finals.
The star, who was joint FIFA Player of the 20th Century with Pelé, did not also fail to hail the King of Morocco. Maradona was quoted as thus:
“Long live the King, long live Morocco, and long live Sahara.”
Report also says that he would be visiting Morocco sometime in the nearest future.
Diego Maradona has quite an appealing resume when it comes to soccer.
Maradona’s exceptional vision, passing, ball control, dribbling skills, speed, reflexes and reaction time was combined with his small size (1.65 m or 5 ft 5 in tall), giving him a low center of gravity which allowed him to be more maneuverable than most other football players; he would often dribble past multiple opposing players on a run.
His talent earned him the title of “The Golden Boy”.
