Diego Maradona: I have many chances to become Fifa’s new vice-president

Diego-Maradona-007

Diego Maradona has claimed that he may be in line to become a vice-president of Fifa should Prince Ali Bin al-Hussein be elected as Sepp Blatter’s successor as president.

The 1986 World Cup winner and former Argentina coach, whose last role in football was as “spiritual coach” to the Primera D side Deportivo Riestra, has been a long-term opponent of Blatter and described him as “a dictator” last month.

Now, it appears Maradona is keen to help out with the restructuring of football’s governing body and has offered his services to Jordan’s Prince Ali shoud he win the election. “If Prince Ali wins, I have many chances to become Fifa vice-president,” he said on The Football Show on Argentinian TV channel America.

“If I arrive I’ll clean them all up. Blatter is afraid of the FBI and the Swiss police. He was afraid to leave Fifa in handcuffs.”

Maradona also took aim at the Uefa president Michel Platini, while dismissing the former Portugal forward Luís Figo’s chances of succeeding Blatter. “Before I respected him, but then I realised that his word is worth less than Bernardo, Zorro’s friend,” he claimed.
