Maradona resigns as Boca Juniors vice president
font size    

Argentine World Cup saga figure Diego Maradona has quit his post of vice-president in Argentine giants Boca Juniors.

His move comes two weeks before former Mexico coach Ricardo La Volpe is due to coach the club which displeased Maradona.

Maradona explained that he was unhappy with the Argentine Football Federation for taking their coach Alfio 'Coco' Basile away to national team from Boca after the season had already begun.

"This chapter is closed. There will be no interference. I will maintain close relations with the players and (president) Mauricio (Macri), who deserves my respect, but I will only go to matches as a supporter," said Maradona.

It may not be long before 45-year-old Maradona is back involved in football again, as he said he will be ready to take up a management post in January or February.
