Maradona eyes EPL

Posted By: Samyuktha
London, Oct 29: After being sacked from the post of coach of the Argentine national squad, fottball legend Diego Maradona is eyeing the English Premier League (EPL).

In an interview with the Sky Sports News, Maradona revealed his desire to manage in the English Premier League.

"Yes, I would like to manage in the Premier League. It has very good teams, an exceptional level and great players. The only problem is all the teams I like in England have good coaches. If any important job comes along I will accept it," said the former Argentine coach, who lead the team into the quarterfinals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Amid reports linking him with a number of posts in recent months, including the Aston Villa job, the former world Cup-winning captain sought to clarify that he was never in the running to accept a role.

"I want to make it clear that I didn't offer myself for any job, nor did anyone offer me anything. But I know I will go back with the national team some day, that is my fate. I'm waiting," he said.

Indicating that he was still bitter over his sacking from the national team, Maradona said, "They took away the national team from me unfairly. I don't want to talk about it, it doesn't deserve any words. I am in too good a mood to talk about people who don't deserve my words. But I do miss the national team."
