Aston Villa

Guess Who’s Stuck His Nose Into The New Manager Betting?

World Cup, footballing, boozing and cocaine legend Diego Maradona has put himself forward as a surprise candidate to succeed where Martin O’Neill ultimately failed.

“Diego is very attracted to English football and the way of life in your country and I know he would be very willing to move there,”

his spokesman Walter Soriano said at the weekend. “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. If the owner Randy Lerner wants to make him a serious offer, I’m sure he’d get a very positive response.”


Aston Villa fans will be relieved to hear that bookmakers are making Maradona a 66-1 outsider. Less funny is Sven’s name at 6/1.  Here are the prices in full from Paddy Power…
