Diego Maradona wants Aston Villa job, doesn’t ‘get’ UK media
Please let it be true
Having had his bluff firmly called by the Argentinean FA, it appears ill-fitting suit fan and confirmed LAD Diego Maradona has got his permanently-dilated eyes on Martin O’Neill’s vacated hotseat at Aston Villa.
According to his ‘European spokesman’ Walter Soriano, a job at Villa Park could be the introduction to English football Diego has always dreamt of:
Diego is very attracted to English football and the way of life in [England] and I know he would be very willing to move there.
Most right-thinking fans will have stopped reading at ‘football’ and written such news off as nonsense attention seeking, but wait – this story has given birth to an early contender for quote of the season:
He loves the English countryside and your respect for privacy, so he would be very happy there, especially at a big club like Aston Villa
In other news, yesterday’s News of the World ran more relationship-wrecking pictures of Peter Crouch hanging off a variety of blondes as its front-page lead, and today’s Mail is weeping into its cornflakes about not being allowed to reveal another England player’s indiscretions.
