I never knew what a pillow was - Diego Maradona

Dorados new head coach Diego Maradona has reflected on his past life and reveal how things were difficult for him and all the things he had to past through.

Maradona was appointed has Dorados head coach last week when the club parted with thier former coach Francisco Gomez. The Argentina legend is overwhelm by the job and wants to give all for the club.

Maradona had his first interview with the press since joining the club last week and he took time to explain what happened to him in the past and how his daughters helped him to be strong.

'I want to give Dorados what I lost when I was sick,' he said

'Today I want to see the sun and I want to go to sleep at night. Before I didn't go to sleep and I didn't even know what a pillow was. That's why I accepted the offer from Dorados.'

'I'm taking on this responsibility as if it were a new child,' he added

'Ever since I kicked my illness 15 years ago, [when] I was wasting away. I want to explain to you that when I was using I was falling apart.'

'It was a step backward and a footballer always has to go forward. That all stopped thanks to my daughters.'

'I was left without a cent, I went back to work, my youngest daughter, who was four, convinced me, she said I had experienced things with Dalma and not with her. When I was in a coma and she touched my bedsheet to wake me up.'

'Then I came out, and like everybody, we are judged and we think we told the truth, I wonder how many people there are here who have done worse things than us and they have not made the papers. I am here to work.'

'I am here to give my heart like I did in Fujairah, where I drove 300 kilometres a day to work. When you put down that club has no titles, make sure you put in the promotion.'

Maradona will hope to do well in his new club and it will really be a big challenge for him as the club is currently sitting at the bottom of the table.
