Diego Maradona: Top 10 Possible Destinations for the World Cup Legend

Rumors have recently started circulating that Diego Maradona is interested in managing in the Premier League and that there may be some interest from some clubs.  Granted, the source of those rumors is unclear.  It may have been Maradona himself creating the rumors.  I wouldn't put it past him. With Maradona, anything is possible. 

Some critics, like former Spurs boss Ossie Ardiles, have already come out and said that Maradona would struggle at the helm of a Premier League club. 

Maradona has had limited managerial experience.  In 1994 and 1995 he managed Mandiyu de Corrientes and Racing Club in Argentina.  His combined record with those two clubs was 3-12-8. Not too impressive.

His only other coaching stint came last year as Argentina's manager for the World Cup.  Maradona fared much better with a record of 14-5.  Opponents however argued that he was more of a cheerleader than a manager and that when Argentina was faced with a legitimate opponent, like Germany, Maradona was unable to make tactical adjustments and was ultimately out-coached. 

Maradona resigned after the World Cup admit plenty of drama and controversy.  Which is par for the course for most everything Maradona does. 

While it remains to be determined if Maradona is a legitimate manager or just a cheerleader, plenty of clubs are failing and need to change managers and their locker room atmosphere. 

Why not hire Maradona? If he fails, the club can just release him at the end of the season.

In the meantime he will create buzz and news for the club.  Because love him or hate him, Maradona always provides drama and gives fans plenty to talk about.

So who knows if any clubs are actually interested in Maradona.  But let's look at 10 of the possible managerial destinations, inside and outside the Premier League, for the man with a hand from God.
