Diego Maradona had a bitter first outing as the new coach for Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, falling to Racing Club 2-1 during the sixth week of Argentina's Superliga campaign.

After all the hoopla and great expectations for Maradona at the helm of Gimnasia, he got off to a poor start against Racing, which notched its second win in the Argentine league.
