– Maradona believes he could do a better job at Man United than Solskjaer
– The Argentine legend is currently manager with Mexican side, Dorados
– Solskjaer guided the Red Devils to a sixth place finish this season
Diego Maradona has opened up about the possibility of managing Premier League giants, Manchester United.
Maradona reckons he should replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager to turn around the club’s fortunes.
Speaking to sports outlet FourFourTwo, the Argentine football legend hinted he would first get rid of Paul Pogba in one of his radical changes at Old Trafford.
“If Manchester [United] need a coach, I’m the man to do it,” he said.
“I know they sell lots of shirts around the world, but they need to win trophies, too. I can do that for them,” he added.
The Red Devils are yet to lift the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s last in 2013, with the Scot’s successors adding one FA Cup, one League Cup and the Europa League title.
The club’s fading glory has now seen Maradona switch allegiance to Manchester City.
“Manchester United used to be my favourite English team for so long. So many great players and a great team under Alex Ferguson. But now I have to say Manchester City,” he disclosed.
The 58-year-old is currently managing Mexican second-tier side, Dorados de Sinaloa after coaching spells in the United Arab Emirates.
Meanwhile, United is currently set for a big summer rebuild, with Solskjaer expected to play a central role in the busy transfer window.
