Maradona: I'll do any job for Napoli - just call me

Diego Maradona has told Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis he wants to get involved. Maradona has been mentioned as a replacement for coach Walter Mazzarri.

"Did you know that for me is a dream. When I was in Naples, the last time, I had already expressed this, but then Mazzarri was doing very well, and I definitely did not want to disturb his work," he told Tuttonapoli.net .

"I am ready, if Napoli call me. I will say more: I will do any role in the club. Coach, team manager: to me it makes no difference. I just want to go back to work in Naples and for Napoli, to try to build, thanks to the affection of the fans, something very important.

"De Laurentiis has created a DVD, using my name for a commercial initiative. I did not ever give him permission, but I will not make a fuss, in fact: it gives me pleasure, it means that he, in his heart, admires what Maradona did for Napoli. And if he wants me, he knows how to find me."
