Juventus will wait until a new head coach is appointed to discuss the possibility of an audacious attempt to re-sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United, says sporting director Fabio Paratici. Paul Pogba? Doesn't work hard enough, Maradona added.

Maradona is now in charge of Dorados de Sinaloa in the Mexican second tier.

Pogba is believed to be keen to quit Old Trafford this summer, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side having failed to qualify for next season's Champions League after a disappointing campaign.

If Manchester [United] need a coach, I'm the man to do it, Maradona said in an interview with FourFourTwo magazine. 'I know they sell lots of shirts around the world, but they need to win trophies, too.

But he still claimed he would like the chance to sit in the Old Trafford dugout.

For Maradona, Pogba's work-rate would see him axed should he ever find himself in the hot-seat and managing the player.

Due to Jupiter's comparatively slower orbit around the Sun, Jupiter's opposition comes around once every 13 months. Opposition means that as Earth whirls around the Sun once every 365 days, the outer planets revolve a lot slower.

Maradona, a World Cup victor with Argentina in 1986, had a spell in charge of the national team between 2008 and 2010.

City striker Sergio Aguero used to be Maradona's son-in-law and the 58-year-old paid close attention to the success garnered by those in the blue half of Manchester.

Juventus duo Paulo Dybala and Joao Cancelo are both said to have attracted interest from United in recent months, and could be utilised in a bid to lure Pogba back to Turin. I know you shouldn't change like that but it's because of Kun [Aguero].

The Red Devils have struggled to replace the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson since his retirement in 2013, with David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho all trying and failing.

"Federico Chiesa? We certainly have a competitive team".
