Maradona, who most recently managed UAE second-division side Fujairah, will be taking over football operations.

Dinamo Brest have appointed Diego Maradona as their new president on a three-year deal.

It is quite interesting that the football club was founded in the year when Diego Maradona was born.

With Fujairah he left the club after failing to secure promotion to the UAE's top flight in April.

"Yes, Diego is with us!"

Maradona, one of football's most divisive figures off the field, will oversee the "strategic development" of the club when he takes over following the June14-July 15 World Cup in Russian Federation, according to a tweet. "Thanks for the trust and for thinking of me".

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

They face BATE in the Belarusian Cup final on Sunday, where they will seek to defend the trophy they won previous year.

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.
