Diego Maradona wishes to become Manchester United manager in the future so that he can bring back the glory days.

And he hinted that his first point of call will be to sell France international Paul Pogba.

The 1986 World Cup winner currently manages Mexican second-tier side Dorados de Sinaloa after spells coaching in the United Arab Emirates and as chairman at Belarusian side Dynamo Brest.

Speaking to FourFourTwo, he said: “If Manchester [United] need a coach, I’m the man to do it.

“I know they sell lots of shirts around the world, but they need to win trophies, too. I can do that for them."

United last won the Premier League title under Sir Alex Ferguson since he left Old Trafford in the 2012-13 season.

And the Red Devils have just added one FA Cup, one League Cup and the Europa League to their major trophy haul.

But it is a compatriot of Maradona's that has forced him to switch allegiance from United to their rivals across town.

He added: “Manchester United used to be my favourite English team for so long. So many great players and a great team under Alex Ferguson.

"But now I have to say Manchester City. I know you shouldn’t change like that but it’s because of Kun [Aguero]. We speak a lot and he plays in a very good team."

And while one of Maradona's favourite players has been allowed to leave for free this summer, he also suggests Pogba would follow him out of the door.

Maradona revealed: “With United I liked Ander Herrera. Paul Pogba? Doesn’t work hard enough.

“I played at Old Trafford [in the 1983/84 Cup Winners’ Cup quarter-final]. What noise, like La Bombonera.”
