Maradona has never truly proved himself as a coach, though he has been given plenty of opportunities to do so having taken the helm with the likes of Racing Club, Al Wasl and home nation Argentina, but that hasn’t stopped the Italian website from claiming that the 53-year-old is is in the running to relieve under fire boss Villas-Boas from his current duties.
The former Porto boss, however, seems to have managed to pull his club up from the rubble in recent weeks following victories over both Fulham and Sunderland after the humbling at the hands of Manchester City.
AVB’s job has come under scrutiny, though, but a lack of a suitable candidate has been thought to slow any sort of dismissal down as Daniel Levy knows that to hire the wrong man now would be suicide.
Maradona was tentatively linked with the vacant position at Aston Villa in 2011, shortly before they hired Alex McLeish, but like now, there was probably no truth in the rumours.
