Aston Villa

Whole Lotta Sucking Going On

Taking the reigns at Villa Park?

The one and only Diego Maradona has expressed an interest in the vacant managerial post at Villa Park. It’d certainly be bizarre, and I imagine fans of the 19 Premiership clubs that aren’t Aston Villa would be more than willing to see it happen. When you think of all the supposedly contentious managers that the Premiership era has seen, just imagine how all of their dodgy press conference comments would pale in comparison to anything uttered by him. For instance, if you cast your mind back to October of last year, Argentina have just qualified for the 2010 World Cup, following a couple of late winners against Peru and Uruguay. El Diego steps up to the mic:

“To those who did not believe: now suck my d*ck – I’m sorry ladies for my words – and keep on sucking it. I am either white or black. I will never be grey in my life. You treated me as you did. Now keep on sucking d*cks. I am grateful to my players and to the Argentinean people. I thank no one but them. The rest, keep on sucking d*cks.”


Maradona himself is yet to comment on the subject, but his agent, Walter Soriano, has claimed that Maradona is “very attracted to English football and the way of life in your country”. Soriano went on to claim that “he loves the English countryside and your respect for privacy”. Hmm. Well, we do have some nice countryside. On the privacy front, however, El Diego may be in for something of a surprise.

Randy Lerner may opt to take on a real manager for the job, however, and Kevin MacDonald has done his chances a favour following an impressive 3-0 win against West Ham on Saturday. USA manager Bob Bradley and compensation fanatic Sven-Göran Eriksson remain in the running. But none of these would be as … well … fun. Maradona in the Premiership. It’d be brilliant, wouldn’t it?
