A week ago, Diego Maradona, Board Chairman of FC Dynamo Brest, was going to start working in Belarus, but he suddenly found a job in Mexico – and not even in the best club.
On Friday morning, Mexican second division club Dorados de Sinaloa has reported Diego Maradona’s being appointed its technical director. At that, Maradona has a valid contract with the Belarusian club until May 2021.
When reached for a comment, Dynamo said they needed some time to see which way the wind was blowing. Earlier, in a similar situation, the club said they did not comment on rumours.
On August 30, there were reports about Maradona’s leaving Dynamo. A day later, the famous football player sent birthday greetings to the Belarusian leader on Instagram. “I can’t help admiring the President of Belarus Alyaksandr Lukashenka. I want say happy birthday and thank him for giving me a job in his country. Next week I will start in Dynamo Brest,” he wrote.
Maradona may become another Argentine leaving the club for Mexico. At the beginning of 2018, its former leader Leonardo Torres did not return to Brest after his vacation. Dynamo Brest failed to make Torres continue his work in accordance with one-and-a-half-year contract.
In May, the legendary Argentine football player became the board chairman of the FC Dynamo (Brest). It was reported that Diego Maradona would deal with strategic development of the club, as well as interact with all its structural units, including the children’s academy Dynamo-Brest.
However, rumours have it that the story of Maradona and the Brest club is coming to its end. He seems to have hardly any influence on the events in Dynamo. For example, he agreed on inviting Cristian Kampestrini, but it turned out that the club was not going to buy the Argentine goalkeeper. In addition, Maradona was expected to live in Belarus. But in the end all was limited to one visit in mid July.
