Diego Maradona may be offered a chance of coaching the Iran national football team, according to Persian sports paper Khabar Varzeshi.
Football Federation Islamic Republic of Iran (FFIRI) president Ali Kaffashian is expected to hold talks with Maradona's entourage. The coach's agent is expected to visit Iran on Saturday when dialogue will be opened.
However, Goal.com understands there is no official confirmation of the Maradona idea, though it has been confirmed the Argentinean wanted to visit the country before World Cup 2010.
Maradona is also said to have sent Iran president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad his jersey.
