Argentine legend, Diego Maradona has said he will quit his job at Mexican second-division club Dorados at the end of the season over perceived refereeing bias against his team.

The 58-year-old Maradona made the decision on Friday following a 1-1 draw with Venados, claiming his touchline presence led to decisions going against his team. “Once it (the Clausura) is finished, I will leave Dorados. I’m very sorry about it, but that’s my decision” Maradona said at a news conference.
