Just think how much different FIFA would be operating if Diego Maradona was in charge and ran rampage.
Well, the Argentinean legend has apparently thrown his name into the official candidacy hat to replace Sepp Blatter as FIFA President.
This news has come from a Venezuelan-based television network, so the world will wait with bated breath to see if it is actually true or not.
However, with the rumoured news, William Hill have put the icon at 33/1 to become the next president.
Maradona has been called “mad” amongst many other things in his career and certainly has come across as a volatile person.
There has been over the top theatrics from him during his playing career and time as manager, not to mention violence and his personal drug problems. Not exactly the poster boy to lead the world’s football governing body in the wake of all the scandals that have been going on there.
Frankly even dissidents who would like to rebel against the current FIFA setup aren’t likely to vote for him.
There are genuine better options in UEFA President Michel Platini who is 9/4 for the job, while Luis Figo, who has never shied away from voicing his opinion is a good 8/1 dark horse with the bookmaker.
