Toe Poke Daily: Newell's Old Boys give Argentina legend Diego Maradona king's treatment
The Toe Poke Daily is here every day to bring you all the weirdest stories, quirkiest viral content and top trolling that the internet has to offer, all in one place.
We all know that Diego Maradona enjoys god-like status in Argentina, but Newell's Old Boys took it to new heights on Tuesday.
The Albiceleste legend, now coach of Gimnasia La Plata, was welcomed by his former club Newell's with a special pre-match presentation which included his very own chair on the sideline from which to coach from.
It was kind thought from the hosts, given that Maradona is still recovering from a knee operation he had in July. The warm welcome didn't end there either -- the Newell's players got in on the action by gifting Gimnasia a much-needed 4-0 win.
The victory lifted Maradona's side off the bottom of the Argentine Superliga table, proving that Argentina's football god may just have another miracle left in him!
