Diego Maradona says he is the man to fix Manchester United, with the Argentine legend claiming that he could lead the club back to its former glory.

Maradona is currently managing Dorados in Mexico’s second division, having fallen just short of promotion in two successive campaigns.

Manchester United, meanwhile, are currently managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who replaced Jose Mourinho on an interim basis mid-season before being given the job permanently.

But Maradona says he believes that he is the one who could bring trophies back to Old Trafford if given the chance to manage Manchester United.

“If Manchester [United] need a coach, I’m the man to do it,” he told FourFourTwo.

“I know they sell lots of shirts around the world, but they need to win trophies, too. I can do that for them.”

Prior to taking over at Dorados, Maradona managed Argentina from 2008-10 before taking charge at Al Wasl and Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates.

He also served as chairman at Dynamo Brest and an assistant at Deportivo Riestra.

The former Napoli star was quick to explain one player that would be vital to his efforts to restore the club as well as one that would not.

“With United I liked Ander Herrera. Paul Pogba? Doesn’t work hard enough,” he said.

“I played at Old Trafford [in the 1983/84 Cup Winners’ Cup quarter-final]. What noise, like La Bombonera.”

While he’s angling for the Man Utd job, Maradona did admit that he has become a fan of Manchester City, a club led by his former son-in-law.

Sergio Aguero was married to Gianinna Maradona, the youngest daughter of the former Argentina star, and Maradona admitted that he remains a fan of Manchester City.

“Manchester United used to be my favourite English team for so long. So many great players and a great team under Alex Ferguson. (SuperSport)
