Maradona: 'I'm the man' to fix Man United

Maradona: 'I'm the man' to fix Man United

Diego Maradona believes he is the man to turn around Manchester United's fortunes next season.

The man with the "Hand of God" is now in charge of Mexican side Dorados de Sinaloa after spells as manager at Al-Wasl Sports Club and Al-Fujairah SC in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

He said the Frenchman "doesn't work hard enough" to be in his team.

"If Manchester [United] need a coach, I'm the man to do it", Maradona told FourFourTwo.

"I know they sell lots of shirts around the world, but they need to win trophies, too".

Maradona also gave his opinion on Paul Pogba, whose future at Old Trafford remains the subject of doubt amid rumours Real Madrid and his former club Juventus are interested in his signature.

For Maradona, Pogba's work-rate would see him axed should he ever find himself in the hot-seat and managing the player. Maradona was in charge of Argentina in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

The 58-year-old admits to having a soft spot for United but revealed they have now been overtaken by City.

Aguero was married to Gianna Maradona and the pair have a son together, Benjamin, leading his ex-wife's father to form a bond with Aguero's side.

According to the same story, the 20-time English champions would want a far greater fee than the £89m that Manchester United paid for Pogba in 2016. So many great players and a great team under Alex Ferguson, ' he added.

"With United, I liked Ander Herrera", continued the Argentinian.

I know Wayne Rooney and his mate Steven Gerrard loved a good "erm." but this takes it to a whole new level.

"Federico Chiesa? We certainly have a competitive team".
