Maradona takes charge of Belarusian club Dynamo Brest


Brest, July 17: Argentine football legend Diego Maradona arrived here to begin his new job as chairman and sporting director of Dynamo Brest.
Maradona, 57, signed a three-year contract with Dynamo in May, but he delayed his start date until after the 2018 World Cup, which ended on Sunday, as he had prior commitments to provide commentary on the tournament. Founded in 1960 and rechristened as Dynamo Brest six years ago, the club finished fourth in the Belarus first division last season and qualified for the Europa League, though they went out in the second round.
