Maradona to Portsmouth?

How crazy is that?

It can't be serious, can it? Here's the opening sentence in a story I saw in the Daily Mail:
Diego Maradona is reportedly ready to quit his job as Argentina boss to become Portsmouth's 'global ambassador'.
Is it April Fools Day, in July?

I can't ever see him voluntarily leaving that post (especially for a middle of the pack Premiership team). He's gonna have to be kicked out of it.

Here's his agent, Angel Oscar Moyano, quoted in the story:
Moyano is quoted as saying 'Diego Armando Maradona will be ready to come to Portsmouth FC', adding: 'He's got all top players ready and even he's ready to leave Argentine national team.'
One thing's for sure: it'd be quite the coup for a new ownership group, even though the Argentine hasn't been super impressive.

Bizarre.
