Diego Maradona was warmly welcomed by Newell's Old Boys on Tuesday.

Diego Maradona turned 59 on Wednesday, and on the eve of his birthday a huge party was thrown in his honour. Maradona was the visiting coach in a fiercely partisan Argentine football culture that currently bans visiting fans, and yet he was treated like royalty.

Mauricio Pochettino hopes to coach Newell's Old Boys and Argentina

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has told TyC Sports he would one day like to coach Newell's Old Boys, the club where he started his playing career, and the Argentina national team in the future.

Pochettino joined Newell's as a teenager after the club's then-manager Marcelo Bielsa travelled to his hometown and, the story goes, inspected the youngster's legs in the dead of night.

He played for the club for five years before moving to Espanyol in 1994, and the 45-year-old has spent the rest of...
