Argentine side Gimnasia LP have confirmed that Napoli icon Diego Maradona is “no longer” their coach.

It had been reported that Maradona would quit Gimnasia if President Gabriel Pellegrino did not stand for re-election, and that has now proven to be the case.

“Maradona is no longer Gimnasia’s coach,” the outgoing patron told Fox Sports Argentina.

“[Reserve-team coach Mariano] Messera will manage the team against Arsenal [Sarandi].”

The 59-year-old was only hired in September and had improved their fortunes, winning three of his last five games in charge.

Despite that, Gimnasia remain in the Superliga relegation zone, three points adrift of safety.

Report: Ibrahimovic waiting for Napoli, Milan offers before deciding Bologna move

Veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is waiting for offers from Italian Serie A giants Napoli and AC Milan before making his final decision regarding moving to Bologna, as per Sportmediaset cited by Calciomercato.com .

The 38-year-old is set to become a free-agent once his contract with the Major League Soccer (MLS) club Los Angeles (LA) Galaxy will come to an end on December 31 next month.

There have been media reports in the last few days that Serie A outfit Bologna are leading the race to sign the former Paris Saint Germain (PSG) striker in the January transfer window.

But as per the latest development, Ibrahimovic is taking time before making his decision as he is waiting for offers from Napoli and Milan—both of whom have shown interest in acquiring the services of the former Manchester United striker in the recent past.

Ibrahimovic has a vast experience of playing in the Serie A as he has already represented as many as three clubs in the Italy’s top division in the past.

Official: Bonucci extends contract with Juve till 2024

Italian Serie A giants Juventus’ veteran defender Leonardo Bonucci has extended his contract with the club till 2024.

The 32-year-old is being termed by many as one of the best centre-back currently playing in the world of football and previously had a contract with the Turin-based club till the summer of 2022.

The announcement regarding contract extension came through an official press release on Tuesday evening which stated: “It’s a long and intense story; the one that links Leonardo Bonucci to Juventus. And it’s a story that will continue to develop until 2024, after he officially penned in his contract renewal with the club today.”

In his new contract, Bonucci—who has attracted interest from the likes of English Premier League giants Manchester City and French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in the summer—will earn salary of €7.5 million per season.

The Italy international first joined Juve in the summer of 2010 from Serie C side Bari for a reported transfer fee of €15.50 million.

However, Bonucci joined league rivals AC Milan in a surprising move in 2017 but returned to Juve just 12 months after completing the switch.

In his career, Bonucci has represented Juve in 376 matches in all competition, where he has scored 25 goals and provided 10 assists.
