Queiroz was axed from his job as Portugal coach on Thursday.
Maradona is reportedly keen on the idea of coaching Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo.
“It’s true. Diego and I already talked about it, is a project that would please us greatly. He has the will and the total availability, but so far he has not been contacted,” one of Maradona’s assistants during his time in charge of Argentina, Alejandro Mancuso, told A Bola.
