Spanish La Liga returnees Elche are reportedly ready to appoint Argentina football legend Diego Maradona as their new manager after getting promotion back to topflight.
Victories over Real Zaragoza and Girona helped Elche to make a stunning return back to the Spanish La Liga.
But despite his effort to steer club back to the Spanish La Liga, Elche chiefs failed to retain Coach Rojo Pacheta as they asked him to leave after their celebrations.
The move came at the request of the new owner, Christian Bragarnik, who has been likened to super-agent Jorge Mendes, who has played an influential role at Wolves.
According to the latest development by Daily Mail, he could use his influence to bring in Diego Maradona for the new season in Spain.
Diego Maradona is currently managing in his native Argentina where he is boss at Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata.
