A hat trick from Vinicio Angulo helped get Diego Maradona’s managerial career in Mexico off to the perfect start, yesterday, as his new club Dorados beat Tapachula 4-1 in Culiacan.
Ecuadorian striker Vinicio Angulo struck in the 59th and 61st minutes and although Argentine Sebastian Ibars got a goal back for the visitors two minutes later, Angulo converted a penalty with a quarter of an hour remaining to put them 3-1 up.
Alonso Escoboza added a fourth for the home side in the 85th minute to cap a perfect night for the Argentine coach on his return to the sidelines.
Prior to Monday’s match, Maradona demanded privacy amid the media frenzy that surrounded his joining of the club and used his post-match news conference to turn the focus back to football.
“I’m not here to steal money from anyone. I came to work not to keep mouths shut,” he said. “Nobody knows what I’m doing during the week with my coaching staff so that’s why some voices are silent now.
“There is no Maradona effect. I knew that we will win when I saw them train with desire, with hunger, these guys are hungry for glory.
