Diego Maradona will stay as Gimnasia coach until the finish of the 2020-1 season, the club announced on Wednesday after broadening its deal.

In September 2019, the 1986 World Cup saint arrived in La Plata with the club buried in a tough situation having lost four and drawn one of their five opening games.

In any case, Gimnasia will remain in the Primera Division for the coming term after relegation because of a coronavirus pandemic that has been suspended.

And they’ll also boast Diego indeed on the seat after agreeing with the Lobo to a one-year expansion.

“You’re known as Pelusa, the Cosmic Kite, God, Diego, Diegote, Captain,” the club composed on their official account on Twitter.

Maradona ‘s come back to Argentina’s football, where he had recently coached with Deportivo Mandiyu and Racing Club during brief spells in 1994-5 and starred as a player for Argentinos Juniors, Boca Juniors and Newell’s Old Boys, caused a mix in Gimnasia as well as across the Superliga.

In the space of half a month, enrollment numbers at the Tripero rose by more than 5,000, while each away game was welcomed with lavish tributes to the coach and standing ovations from the terraces.

Many clubs even ventured to such an extreme as to give Maradona a leather ‘seat’ to sit on and watch each game instead of the seat of substitutes.

Meanwhile on the pitch, previous Argentina, Dorados, and Al-Wasl manager oversaw an unassuming improvement in La Plata after having endured a rough start with three consecutive defeats after taking over.

Gimnasia won six, drew five and lost 10 of their fixtures under Maradona, a run that lifted them to the nineteenth situation in the Superliga standings at the end of the season while keeping the club attached to the bottom of the average point table that decides relegation.
