Diego Maradona's Touchline Antics Last Night Were Absolutely Hilarious

Diego Maradona's Touchline Antics Last Night Were Absolutely Hilarious

Diego Maradona's touchline antics during Gimnasia's game against Central Cordoba were absolutely hilarious.

The Argentine legend is in charge of Gimnasia who have battled relegation in Argentina's Primera División all season.

It seems that the relegation battle is getting to the 59-year-old who took a tumble after his side missed a glorious chance to take the lead.

The World Cup winner was also seen shaking while praying on the touchline in a tense affair at the Juan Carmelo Zerillo Stadium.

Gimnasia managed to come from behind in the second half and win 2-1.

The result moves 'El Lobo' to 21st in the table after being bottom when Maradona came in at the beginning of September.

Maradona was tearful at full-time when interviewed which just adds to his bizarre day.

Maradona's spell in charge of Gimnasia has been a turbulent one.

The former attacker took the job at the strugglers on the condition that current president Gabriel Pellegrino stayed on in his role.

Maradona is a vocal ambassador for Pellegrino and the cap he wore at yesterday's game showed his support.

He also reaffirmed his stance on the presidency issue following yesterday's game.

When asked if he'll remain in his job should Pellegrino leave, he replied:

"No, only if Pellegrino wins the election.

"It is definitive.

"I won't negotiate with anyone else, I'm not a traitor."

Whether he stays in the job or not remains to be seen.

But he's managed to deliver some iconic moments during his brief time back in management.
