Diego Maradona was appointed head coach at club Gimnasia in a contract until the conclusion of the season.
The interview sees the 58-year-old return if he left his job, to perform in his homeland for the first time since 2010.
In a brief statement, Gimnasia stated:”Star of world soccer, Diego Armando Maradona, is now signed his name and is the new trainer of Gimnasia. The deal runs before the conclusion of the present year”
Gimnasia are now bottom of the Primera Division of Argentina after picking up only 1 point.
Maradona, who assisted Argentina at the 1986 World Cup to glory, was head trainer at club Dorados of Sinaloa.
He led them to the play-offs but stepped in June, citing the need for surgeries on shoulder and his knee.
