A bizarre television interview and his political views on the Superclásico fiasco aside, Diego Maradona was also making news for all the right reasons this weekend as his Dorados side earned a 2-1 aggregate win over Ciudad Juarez to advance to the Ascenso playoff final.
Whether or not you question Maradona’s abilities as a coach, there is no doubting the Argentinian’s impact in Sinaloa which has seen Dorados go from playoff outsiders to potentially sealing a spot in Mexico’s top flight.
A 1-0 defeat on Saturday evening, only the second of Maradona’s tenure, didn’t matter as Dorados held on for a 2-1 aggregate victory to set up a title showdown with Atlético San Luis.
