Maradona admits ambitions of taking charge of Napoli

Argentina coach Diego Maradona would love to take charge of Napoli in the future.

Maradona was subjected to heavy criticism in Argentina, but is winning many over in South Africa.

"I hope to be Coach of Argentina for many years, but then I would like to fulfil another ambition. It is and always has been my dream to be Coach of Napoli," said the Stadio San Paolo hero.

"I would love to see the San Paolo packed to the rafters again. I watch Napoli's games on television and hate to see areas of the stands empty.

"I lived in Italy for seven years, but being in Naples meant it felt like 14! I will always have those people in my heart.

"I know that now Italy are out, the Neapolitans will support Argentina. This is why I adore them and, even if others may criticise, I will never speak ill of Naples."
