Argentina legend, Diego Maradona claims that he is the man to turn Manchester United around – adding that Paul Pogba does not work hard enough.
“If Manchester [United] need a coach, I’m the man to do it,” Maradona said in an interview with FourFourTwo magazine.
“I know they sell lots of shirts around the world, but they need to win trophies, too. I can do that for them.
“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 Man City.
“I know you shouldn’t change like that but it’s because of Kun [Aguero]. We speak a lot and he plays in a very good team.”
And he revealed he already has some firm views on United’s team – while praising the atmosphere created by fans.
“With United I liked Ander Herrera. Paul Pogba? Doesn’t work hard enough.
“I played at Old Trafford [in the 1983/84 Cup Winners’ Cup quarter-final]. What noise, like La Bombonera.”
Maradona is currently managing lowly Dorados in the Mexican second division. The former Argentina coach has managed two teams in the United Arab Emirates in recent years, before taking up his current role with Dorados last year.
