Maradona Has Mexican Near Promotion
His middle-finger salute to the crowd after Lionel Messi's goal against Nigeria was followed by an emergency transfer to a local hospital.
But now, rather than making headlines for all the wrong reasons off the pitch, Diego Maradona is making headlines on it for his performances as manager of Mexican club Dorados.
After all, the Argentina legend held just two managerial jobs in the eight years since he left his post in charge of the national team in 2010 -- Emirate clubs Al-Wasl and Fujairah SC.
But he and his players have proved their doubters wrong, earning a place in the Ascenso MX playoff final and are now just two games away from promotion to Mexico's first tier, Liga MX.
