If ever there was a former player who probably should have stayed away from management it’s Diego Maradona. He’s not had a great time of it yet he keeps coming back for more. He’s got a new job and the fans welcomed him in a strange yet befitting way.
The BBC confirmed yesterday that he had accepted the job to take charge of Argentine side Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata.

So how did the fans welcome him? Of course by dancing in the streets with a live chainsaw:
To be fair to the fans they don’t seem overly phased by the guy wielding the live chainsaw and I’m sure it’s a welcoming gesture really.
Let’s just hope results improve under Maradona’s reign.
