Maradona has yet to meet his new son Diego Fernando, who was born last week, but he has already worked out where he will play in a future Argentine national team with Lionel Messi and Kun Aguero's sons. For the record, Messi's son, Thiago, is three months old and Aguerio's boy, who is Maradona's grandson, just turned four.

From Reuters:

"One of them will have to play as a midfielder. I think Thiago (Messi) will command the others. Benjamin (Aguero) will play as a forward and Thiago will play alongside Dieguito Fernando," Maradona told a local radio station from Dubai.

So...no pressure, kids.

It's also worth noting that Maradona has another son named Diego Armando Maradona Sinagra. He's 26 years old and plays in the Argentine fourth division. He also met his father for the first time in 2003 when he conned his way onto a golf course in Italy (Maradona refused to take a paternity test in 1993).

And if you're wondering why Maradona hasn't been home to see Diego Fernando yet, he also explains that:

"I'm under contract in Dubai [as a consultant to organizers of sporting events] until June, and then I'll go to Argentina but I won't stay long," said the 52-year-old former Argentina captain and coach.

"I'll see him (Diego Fernando) all the time possible. He will have everything he needs."

We can only hope that Maradona is back in charge of the Argentine national team when it comes time to usher in this next generation, who will hopefully all be in careers of their choice by then.
