Argentine legend Maradona, a former World Cup winner recognised as one of the all-time greats, last month stepped down as coach of United Arab Emirates second division club Al-Fujairah.

"Yes, Diego's with us!" the club wrote on its official Twitter account late Tuesday, following media rumours over the weekend.

Maradona, one of football's most divisive figures off the field, will oversee the "strategic development" of the club when he takes over following the 14 June-15-July World Cup in Russia, according to a tweet.

Dinamo, based in the south-west of Belarus, are currently in eighth position in the country's Premier league.
