Diego Maradona quits as coach of Argentine club Gimnasia


Diego Maradona has quit as coach of Argentinian Superliga side Gimnasia, less than three months after taking over the club.

The club president Gabriel Pellegrino said: “Maradona is no longer the Gimnasia coach, he said he was here to add to things, not to divide”.

Maradona was no longer interested in the club as Pellegrino, the man who brought him back to Argentine football pulled out of running for re-election as the side’s president next Saturday.

Maradona said: “I talked to the president and told him that I would continue if he continues.”
