Moratti to sign Maradona
Friday 19 September, 2008
Inter chief Massimo Moratti is ready to offer former Napoli legend Diego Maradona a job with the Nerazzurri, according to Press reports.
La Gazzetta dello Sport insists that Moratti told the newspaper's former head Candido Cannavò that he planned to employ Maradona in a scouting capacity.
Maradona, who quit his position on the board at Boca Juniors in 2006, would be trusted to search South America for new talent.
“I think we will give Diego a role,” Moratti is quoted as saying. “He represents something important and he has escaped his troubles.”
Moratti also spoke of his delight at the way new Coach Jose Mourinho has acquitted himself.
“I think he has transmitted the right charisma to the squad,” the Beneamata supremo said. “Inter still need to improve but you could see the spirit in Athens.”
Could be a good trick to secure talents from Argentina, including Aguero. I'm all up for this one since he's considered a God in Argentina.
Edit: Just noticed that Stefan brought this up in the thread about Moratti.
