Having had his contract terminated by UAE second division side Al-Fujairah, it was quickly reported - and then denied - that El Diego had been reinstated days later.

The former Argentina star has taken over as head of the Belarusian club's board after leaving his most recent coaching job with Al Fujairah, who play in the United Arab Emirates' second tier.

His first game will be big one, too, as Dinamo are set to face giants BATE in the Belarusian Cup final this weekend.

"Yes, Diego is with us", the club tweeted.

Diego Maradona became the Chairman of the Board of the club "Dinamo-Brest", the official Twitter of the Belarusian club.


"Diego Maradona will be engaged in issues of strategic development of the club, as well as interacting with all its structural units - including the children's academy". Details of the news conference to be released "shortly".

"Thanks for the trust".

"I am president of the club, Dynamo Brest", Maradona said in an Instagram post on Tuesday, reports EFE news agency.

Maradona, a Fifa World Cup victor with Argentina, was appointed as Fujairah manager last May with the objective of leading the club into the Arabian Gulf League.
