An Argentine team creates a “throne” for its coach, Maradona

Diego Maradona gets the treatment of kings in his team “Jimnasia e Esgrima de la Plata”, after the club made a throne for his 59-year-old coach to sit on him in the matches of the opposing team in the Argentine soccer league on his homeland.

According to Reuters news agency, the club will display the chair decorated with the team’s colors at a public auction after each match.

Maradona, the 1986 World Cup winner with Argentina and considered by many to be one of the best players in history, trained Jemnasia in September in an attempt to survive the relegation to the second division.

Khimnasia said that Maradona will sign copies of the throne for sale at the club’s store. The first seat was struck yesterday (Friday) before facing the “Velez Sarsfield” team in the league.

The former Argentine soccer star sparked controversy recently after he said he was kidnapped for 3 days by aliens.

Maradona’s statement came in response to a question he was asked in an interview with the Argentine sports channel TyC Sports about whether he believed or not the presence of aliens, according to the British newspaper “Sun”.

The famous player explained that he had consumed alcoholic drinks and was absent from his home for 3 days, and when he returned later he said that he was kidnapped by aliens, but he could not say more details.
