Diego Maradona’s lengthy managerial career that started in 1994 was likely to end at his home country’s club Gimnasia de La Plata this year. A fallout with the club hierarchy regarding a presidency debate made the Argentina hall of fame to take the decision, but the supporters made him reconsider his post and in a span of just two days he returned to the dugout!
The 1998 FIFA World Cup winner, who took charge of Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata in September 2019, announced the news on his Instagram, with a video of fans welcoming the Golden Boy back at the club with flags. Check out the clip below-

Me da mucha felicidad poder decir que sigo siendo el director técnico de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata. Quiero agradecerle a los hinchas del Lobo, y a los jugadores, porque entre todos nosotros conseguimos finalmente la unidad política del club. Yo espero que cumplan con todo lo que me prometieron. Gracias por sus mensajes, por el apoyo, por la movilización de ayer, con 50 grados de calor, y al nenito que me pidió "Diez, volvé!". Vamos Lobo, aguante Gimnasia!!! 💪💙🐺
Along with the video, the 59 year old stated in the caption that he was rejoiced to return to his post with El Lobo.
“I am very happy to say that I am still the technical director of Gymnastics and Fencing La Plata. I want to thank the fans of the Wolf, and the players, because among all of us we finally got the political unity of the club. I hope they fulfill everything they promised me.
Thank you for your messages, for the support, for yesterday’s mobilization, with 50 degrees of heat, and to the little boy who asked me “Ten, I came back!”. Come on Wolf, hold Gymnastics !!!”
