Diego Maradona has always drawn a crowd wherever he's gone but, since his troubling appearances at the World Cup in Russia this summer, he’s got an extra large lens pointed at him these days.
The latest move in his itinerant career has been to rock up at the Mexican second division side Dorados de Sinaloa, which was something of surprise to his last employers, the Belarusian outfit Dinamo Brest, who had expected the Argentine to take up a post with them after the World Cup.
His work in Mexico has, seemingly, been decent; they’ve managed to earn themselves a place in the promotion play-off against Atletico San Luis which will be played later this week.
But as well as his on-field work might be going, he could perhaps to with a spot of media training, if his effort at a post-game interview with ESPN after his team’s semi-final game is anything to go by.
The 58-year-old appeared to be interviewed by the broadcaster on his impressions of the standard of football in the land he now calls home.
“Diego, being here (in Mexico) I guess that you have watched the MX league more regularly. You have observed it more closely,” said his interviewer.
“I guess you already knew a little bit about it. What do you think of the level of the MX league?”
He looks to either not know what to say or not to be able to pull a suitable platitude from the old store, leaving quite the watchable little clip behind for the rest of us.
