Diego Armando Maradona agreed to keep on for 18 months for Gymnastics if Antonio Torres wins the Spanish elections,reports. Torres’ statements to bring in Maradona in Spanish soccer at Betevé shocked the media.
At the Royal Spanish Federation elections, Sabadell’s long-time official and participant, Gimnástico Mercantil y Terrasa introduced himself as a candidate for president.
Diego already has a contract for the next 18 months as director of Gimnasia La Plata.
Moreover, it takes several months for the dialog between the lawyer and the manager, who at the time are betting on being president of the Catalan Federation.
Finally, the deal would only be executed if Torres was ever to prevail in elections.
Still, Torres said, “If I’m the next Spanish Federation President, for the next two years, Diego Armando Maradona will be the next Spanish coach. He’ll be the Qatar World Cup boss, with the aim of making the final. My squad will be joined by the greatest player in memory, who has gone right here in Barcelona.
“I discussed it with Matías Morla, with Roberto Trotta and with his whole squad. They’re very simple, humble people and Maradona is highly trained as a coach, his knowledge is in soccer above all.”
