Bookmakers: Maradona wants to be manager at Napoli
By Andrew Scott Tuesday, 22 October 2013 01:00
Price per head services know that Maradona is well respected in Naples after a very successful spell as a player at the Stadio San Paolo – something that bookmakers all over the world will not forget.
The 52-year-old had a seven-year stint at Napoli, and bookmakers remember very well when he helped the side to the only two Serie A titles in the history of the team, one in 1987 and another in 1990.
Bookmakers saw that in a very impressive spell at the club, the football legend was also able to send Napoli to success in the UEFA Cup, Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana.
And the former Argentina manager is now looking to return to the club in a managerial position when Spaniard Benitez leaves the Serie A outfit, but does admit that big sides are not likely to gamble and give him the position. Still, price per head and sports bookmaker services can never tell what will happen in the future.
“When Benitez leaves I would like to coach Napoli,” Maradona said in Milan at a question and answer session, and many bookmakers were left wondering if he could actually take the position at some point.
“There are coaching changes all over the place, from Spain to Italy to England to Russia, but some people are afraid of me.
“That’s why I’m not coaching.”
Pay per head services saw that, Napoli had a very good start to the campaign under Benitez, with the club winning six and drawing one of their seven matches in Serie A so far this season, impressing bookmakers everywhere.
