Diego Maradona has been linked with the manager’s job at Tottenham Hotspur in the past few days as speculation continues to surround Andre Villas-Boas future at White Hart Lane.
On HITC, Spurs fans scoffed at the prospect of the Argentine legend turning up in the Tottenham dugout.
One user, ultrapunch said: ‘Maradona to manage Spurs? Don’t make me laugh!! What a ridiculous story. You couldn’t make it up could you? LOL’
Spursfan51 described it as: ‘Laughable, not in a million years.’
Maradona's last managerial post was for Dubai-based club Al Wasl, where he was sacked after 14 months in charge. During his time there the whole board resigned after a trophyless season. Ever since he has been working with Argentinian side Deportivo Riestra.
There was some reaction on twitter to the prospect of Maradona becoming manager of Tottenham, and many users don’t think it will happen, whilst several scoffed at the report.
