HE'S already shown his adroitness with the ball in his hand, so could soccer legend Diego Maradona be about to switch codes?
The former Argentina forward, now manager of United Arab Emirates soccer club Fujairah, met members of local GAA outfit Éire Óg this week.
The Irish contingent presented Maradona with a number 10 jersey at the meeting, which took place during one of Fujairah’s training sessions.
The diminutive player could surely do a job in the half-forward line, given his hand-eye coordination as displayed against England at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.
The Éire Óg club, formed eight months ago, field two men’s teams and a ladies’ team in regional blitzes in the Middle East.
