Former Argentinean football star Diego Maradona made his debut as new head coach of the team Gimnasia and Esgrima La Plata, also known as 'the Wolf’ in the city of La Plata on Sunday.

Footage shows the 1986 World Cup-winning captain making his way through a giant wolf mouth onto the field before getting into a caddy car to be driven to meet the players.

Maradona, who until recently was living in Mexico, decided to quit his previous job after having knee surgery, leaving behind a team he led twice to the Ascenso MX finals, the Sinaola Dorados.

Maradona will embark on his sixth club management role, hoping to set the Gimnasia and Esgrima La Plata team straight after several loses.
