Ex-Argentina coach Maradona interested in Aston Villa job

Table of Contents
Former Argentina boss Diego Maradona would relish the chance of managing Aston Villa, according to his European representative Walter Soriano.

The 49-year-old left his role as Argentina coach last month after his side crashed out in the quarter-finals of the World Cup.

Villa are seeking a new permanent manager at Villa Park after Martin O'Neill quit just days before the start of the new Premier League season.

"I think Diego would be very open to the idea of coming to England and managing Aston Villa," Soriano told the Sunday Mercury.

"He 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.

"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 am sure he would get a very positive response.

"Diego is currently talking with a number of clubs in Europe - including another one in England - about a management role and is looking at his options carefully."
