Maradona Joins Belarus' Brest As Chairman

Maradona will begin his new job after the conclusion of the 2018 World Cup, according to the club, who won the Belarusian Super Cup with a 2-1 victory over BATE in March.

Diego Maradona is unveiled as the new chairman of Dinamo Brest, who are now down in eighth place in the Belarusian Premier League.

"I signed the contract and I am the president of Dinamo Brest". Having had his contract terminated by UAE second division side Al-Fujairah, it was quickly reported - and then denied - that El Diego had been reinstated days later.

"Yes, Diego is with us!"

Today, Diego Maradona signed a contract with FC Dynamo Brest.

With Fujairah he left the club after failing to secure promotion to the UAE's top flight in April. "Thanks for the trust and for thinking of me".

Maradona, a Fifa World Cup victor with Argentina, was appointed as Fujairah manager last May with the objective of leading the club into the Arabian Gulf League. "Diego Maradona will be in charge of the team's strategic development and will interact with all its structural subdivisions, including the Junior Academy of the football club", the press service noted.
