The lawyer of Diego Maradona has claimed that the Argentina national team coach could quit the post and join Premier League side Portsmouth as a global ambassador. The Fratton Park outfit's new owner Sulaiman Al Fahim, who completed his takeover of the club this week, is believed to be a friend of Maradona's cousin Remigio, and recently announced plans to open a Maradona Sports Cafe in the United Arab Emirates. And now Maradona's lawyer, Angel Oscar Moyano, has claimed that Diego could now join Al Fahim's new venture, and help bring high-profile players to the south east side. "He has got top players ready and he is even ready to leave the Argentine national team," Moyano told Arabian Business. "He wants to build a strong team for which he offers his mediation for signing players of top level, who with the support of Diego Maradona, will be ready to come to Portsmouth." Al Fahim added that, while he is unaware of Maradona's coaching qualities given his limited experience, he believes that the presence alone of 'El Diez' in England would me be a massive coup for Portsmouth . "I do not know if Maradona is a good coach," he said. "What I think is that he should be president of a club and have the right to buy and choose players. "At Napoli he started from scratch and built a club. He has the power to transform football teams." PORTSMOUTH FANS!
