  • Maradona leaves post as Gimnasia y Esgrima coach
Sharjah24- Reuters: Diego Maradona has left his position as coach of Argentine side Gimnasia y Esgrima, bringing a premature end to yet another coaching job for the World Cup winner.
"Maradona is no longer the coach of Gimnasia," club president Gabriel Pellegrino said on local radio station La Red on Tuesday.

Maradona, who took over at the club in September, had said he would only continue if Pellegrino stayed on as president following club elections.

Pellegrino, however, withdrew from the race when an electoral pact fell apart.
