Argentine legend Diego Maradona will take over as coach of Superliga side Gimasia, the club announced on its Twitter account Thursday. "Welcome Diego! Every corner of the most beautiful club in the world greets you," the La Plata-based club said. The former Argentina coach quit his job at Mexican second division outfit Dorados in June for health reasons after just nine months in charge. Maradona's appointment at Dorados in September had been a surprise, despite his inglorious coaching history since leaving the national team post following the 2010 World Cup. He also coached second division Emirati side Fujairah.
