Argentina legend sets heart on Arsenal move

Published Add your comment

Diego Maradona has sensationally expressed his desire to work with either Arsenal or Chelsea.

The Argentina legend told Sky Sports News that he has been in talks with Kevin Keegan, discussing what life is like in the English Premier league, being particularly interested in either Arsenal or Chelsea. 

The notorious perpetrator of the 'Hand of God' has explained that he is eager to get back into a coaching role after losing his position as the Argentina coach following their disappointing World Cup. 

This is not the first time Maradona has been linked with a move to England, being linked with Aston Villa as a possible replacement for Martin O'Neill before Gerard Houllier was appointed.

Maradnona supported these claims by telling Sky Sports News: "Of course I would like to manage in the Premier League. It has very good teams, an exceptional level and great players.'

However, the Argentine coach explained that he does not believe a new job to be on the horizon saying: "All the teams I like in England have good coaches. If any important job comes along I will accept it."

Currently the Argentinean is attracted to London Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea, justifying his interest in the two clubs by stating that: "Everything is so professional there: the players, the managers, the coaches. The players are surrounded by everything they need. Everything is phenomenal."

Neither Arsenal or Chelsea have commented on the link.
