Maradona leaves Gimnasia after just two months at the helm

The 59-year-old has departed the Argentine side after only managing to oversee three victories in his short spell in charge

Diego Maradona has been sacked from his job as coach of Gimnasia after just 72 days in charge.

The Argentine icon took over at the helm of the Superliga side in September this year on a deal that was supposed to run to the end of the season.

But Gimnasia have won just three games since the ex-Napoli, Barcelona and Boca Juniors hero's arrival and they sit third bottom of the Argentine top-flight after 13 matches.
