Men's Football Maradona is still in the game

DIEGO MARADONA has taken a new job in football after being confirmed as the technical director of Dorados de Sinaloa.

Earlier the Mexican club announced it had parted company with Francisco Ramirez Gamez, and rumours began to swirl that Maradona would step into the role.

That appointment was confirmed on Thursday evening, with the club tweeting a picture of the 57-year-old and the team’s logo.

A statement on the club’s website said: “The Argentine will take the reins of the Great Fish.”

Dorados play in the second tier of the Mexican league, and have yet to win after six games of the Ascenso MX season so far this year.
