Diego Maradona has signed a three-year contract to join top-flight Belarusian club Dinamo Brest as their new chairman.
Argentine legend Maradona, a former World Cup winner recognised as one of the all-time greats, last month stepped down as coach of United Arab Emirates second division club Al-Fujairah after they failed to gain automatic promotion to the first division.
"Yes, Diego's with us!" the club wrote on its official Twitter account late Tuesday, following media rumours over the weekend.
