The Argentinian legend will step away from the Mexican club after less than a year in charge
Diego Maradona has stepped away from Dorados, ending his stint with the Mexican second division team after less than one year in charge.
Maradona has decided to step away from his post to focus on his health, as the Argentinian legend is set to undergo operations on his shoulder and knee in the near future.
The former forward took charge of Dorados in September 2018, and twice got the team into the title game. Each time, Dorados fell short to Atletico San Luis, which earned promotion to Liga MX as a result of the victories.
In recent weeks, Maradona's future with the club had come into doubt, with his contract set to expire in June, but the manager had stated that he was open to staying with the club.
Maradona claimed his stay depended on whether or not owner Jorge Alberto Hank was able to give him money to spend and the freedom clear out some of the players he no longer wants in the squad.
However, Maradona will now step away for other reasons as he looks to return to full health.
"Together we surprised the world. We show that football is passion and heart," the club said in a tweet.
"Thanks for everything, Boss! Recover and see you soon!"
