El Hombre de Oro
(Shoutout to Nick for the banners)
Welcome to my new story. Unfortunately, my last story ended due to a corrupted save but I'd like to once again thank you all for your overwhelming support in making it Story of the Month and hope that I'll receive the same again.
Anyway, as you may or may not have noticed by the title, I shall be….
Diego Armando Maradona
...and I will be managing...
Back in his heyday, Diego Maradona was nicknamed 'El Pibe de Oro' - Which translates to 'The Golden Kid' in Spanish. No longer a kid, I'll be trying to emulate his superb playing career as an 'Hombre' (man).
Maradona is clearly one of the greatest players to ever grace the planet but he hasn't been as blessed at a managerial level. My task will be to become 'The Golden Man' on the sidelines and engrave the name of Maradona into football folklore once more.
With the rise of AS Monaco, PSG now have a team trying to spoil the party in Ligue 1 meanwhile they try to make their mark on European football. Of course they are a team known for their ataggering wealth but I will try to retract from making exuberant signings and focus on building teams in a more "dignified" manner such as the Arsenal's and Manchester United's of the world.
Throughout this story, I'll be making decisions just as Maradona would, so there is a good chance this could turn out to be some kind of a journeyman story.
