After spending a lively summer roaring Argentina on at the World Cup, it would appear that a return to club management has seen Diego Maradona relax and settle down again.

Maradona was appointed as new head coach of Mexican second-tier side Dorados de Sinaloa back in September and has since overseen two victories from his first four games in charge. Away from the pitch, the 57-year-old has proven that he still has the ability to create a stir everywhere he goes, even his local steak restaurant.

CULIACAN, Mexico -- When Diego Armando Maradona jumped up and wildly celebrated his team's 90th-minute goal in 10-man Dorados de Sinaloa's 2-0 victory over Leones Negros on Saturday in Estadio Banorte, the 57-year-old should have felt some pain.
