Montpellier, France: Outspoken Montpellier president Louis Nicollin told AFP on Friday that he hopes to speak to Argentine legend Diego Maradona about taking over as coach at the club next season.

The French side, who won the Ligue 1 title last season for the first time in their history, are on the lookout for somebody to replace Rene Girard, who has been in charge since 2009 but will leave in the summer when his contract expires.

Nicollin, who often courts attention with his outrageous comments, made headlines on Monday when he told RMC radio that he was keen to recruit Maradona "to annoy PSG."
