Pompey target Maradona role
23 Jul 2009 - 09:16:13
Argentina legend Diego Maradona is reportedly being lined up for a major role with Portsmouth following the recent purchase of the club by Sulaiman Al Fahim.
The 48-year-old is currently the coach of the Argentina national team, but Al Fahim is confident of tempting Maradona to try his luck in England.
He told Arabian Business: "I do not know if Maradona is a good coach.
"What I think is that he should be president of a club and have the right to buy and choose players.
"At Napoli he started from scratch and built a club. He has the power to transform football teams."
Maradona's lawyer, Angel Oscar Moyano, added: "He has got top players ready and he is even ready to leave the Argentina national team.
"He wants to build a strong team for which he offers his mediation for signing players of top level, who with the support of Diego Maradona, will be ready to come to Portsmouth."
