Crazed ex-coke fiend to team-up with crazed regime

Iranian president and erstwhile Roy Keane lookalike Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has suggested that Diego Maradona could be about to take over as coach of Iran’s national team.

The country’s media ran the story after Ahmadinejad appeared to suggest that the Argentine legend was ready to take charge of the team.

At a ceremony for Iranian medal-winners from the Asian Games, Ahmadinejad confirmed that Maradona would be visiting Iran.

The Iranian daily newspaper Ebtekar reported: “When asked about reports of Maradona becoming Iran’s new head coach, he nodded his head.”

Surely a match made in heaven? OTP can’t see anything going wrong there.
