Diego Armando Maradona did almost everything in his life. During his 60 years he traveled throughout all the world and did every single thing he wanted to. As a player he managed to be one of the greatest in the history, not to say the best one, and then continue his career as a manager after retirement.

The life of the Argentinian legend was  always very near to Mexico. With Argentina national team he won there the most remembered title of his life: the World Cup in 1986. During that tournament, he scored on Stadium Azteca two of the most emblematic goals ever of the international competence.

Maradona went back to Mexico as a coach on September 2018 to manage Dorados de Sinaloa Liga Expansión MX side. He was there 38 matches and left on June 2019. A couple of months later, he started as the coach of Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, where he finally passed his last days.

Before all of that, Maradona was very near to manage Chivas or Club America. The offer appeared in his life when he decided he was going to Mexico and someone’s thought that Dorados was a small club for such a legend. After all, the project didn’t advance, and he couldn’t be in front of two of the most important teams in Mexico.
