This Gimnasia fan welcomed new manager Diego Maradona to the club by getting a tattoo of the Argentina legend’s face on the back of his head.

Maradona left Mexican side Dorados de Sinaloa in June citing ill health, but his return to management in his homeland saw thousands turn up for the unveiling.

According to reports, the 1986 World Cup winner was driven around the pitch on a golf buggy and led supporters in a chant of “the one who does not jump is an Englishman”.
