Diego Armando Maradona criticised Sevilla for hiring Vincenzo Montella to replace Eduardo Berizzo. “There are thousands of Coaches who could do the job.”
The decision to fire Berizzo caused immense controversy, as he had just returned to work following cancer treatment when given the boot two days before Christmas.
“It is madness that Montella should take Berizzo’s place,” wrote Maradona on Instagram.
“Especially when Montella was kicked out for doing so badly at Milan. There are thousands of Coaches who could do the job.
“THE BUSINESSMEN CANNOT CONTROL FOOTBALL (Berizzo must be supported). Or at least put in an alternative. This has to change.”
Montella was hired by Sevilla just a month after Milan fired him for poor results and performances.
