The 57-year-old, who stood down as manager of United Arab Emirates outfit Al Fujairah last month, will begin his new position after the World Cup.

Maradona has signed a three-year deal with Brest and is tasked with "dealing with strategic development of the club".


One-time Belarusian Premier League winners Dinamo are currently eighth in the league and through to the Belarusian Cup final, where they will meet BATE Borisov next weekend.
