Maradona's lawyer Matias Morla said that there are still various procedures to go through, but his client is very excited about different possibilities ahead in China.

 

He added that Maradona will guide and train young players at different schools in China, which in the long run will make a big difference to Chinese football.

 

According to an Italian media report, Maradona will also take on the role of ambassador for the Chinese Super League.

The Argentinian had previously stated, in February this year, that he would work for FIFA (Federation Internationale de Football Association) to make it a more transparent and cleaner football organization.
