Al Wasl coach Maradona would love to take charge of Napoli

Al Wasl coach Diego Maradona admits he'd love to return to Napoli as manager.

Maradona remains a legend in Naples.

"I'd love to become the Napoli Coach," he told Jornada Online in Argentina. "I could well give it a go, but only if the Italian State stops forcing me to pay €40m in taxes.

"At the time I signed a contract with the club that excluded taxes. I try to point out that situation, but every time I set foot in Italy I have to hand over a watch or a ring as payment. It was a mistake by those who dealt with my affairs in the 80s.

"God chooses where I will work, so I am not worried by the future."
