Maradona Eyeing For A Move To Aston Villa

Argentina legend Diego Maradona is lining-up a sensational move to become Aston Villa’s next manager.

Martin O’Neill’ shock resignation last week, just five days before the start of the season, has left the Midlands club managerless. Caretaker manager Kevin McDonald lead Villa to a 3-0 home win against West Ham on Saturday, while ex-England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson and USA boss Bob Bradley have both been linked with the vacant post.

But Maradona – who left his role as Argentina manager after the South Americans were dumped out of the World Cup by Germany – has thrown his hat into the ring. His agent, Walter Soriano, said: "I think Diego would be very open to the idea of coming to England and managing Aston Villa."

He is very attracted to English football and the way of life in your country and I know he would be very willing to move there. He loves the English countryside and your respect for privacy, so he would be very happy there, especially at a big club like Aston Villa. If the owner Randy Lerner wants to make him a serious offer, I am sure he would get a very positive response. Diego is currently talking with a number of clubs in Europe – including another one in England – about a management role and is looking at his options carefully." added Soriano
