Diego Maradona fired as Al Wasl coach
Wed, 11 Jul 2012 8:10a.m.
Diego Maradona has been fired as Al Wasl coach following a disappointing season in which the Argentine great failed to win a title for the Dubai club.
The board of directors met Tuesday and issued a statement saying Maradona and his technical staff had been immediately "relieved" of their duties. Maradona, who was on vacation and not in Dubai, could not be reached for comment.
A replacement for Maradona was not announced.
Maradona signed a two-year deal in May 2011. He was popular with fans and helped put United Arab Emirates football on the map, however his team finished eighth in the 12-team league.
Maradona had still been expected to return for a second season but was left vulnerable when the Al Wasl board was replaced in June.
