Al Wasl: Maradona to remain as coach next season
Dubai soccer club Al Wasl says Diego Maradona will remain as
coach next season despite the loss in the GCC Champions League
final that caused the entire board to resign.
Wasl Club chairman Mohammad Ahmad bin Fahad dismissed reports
that Maradona had resigned as a ”mistake.” He said Maradona’s
future had not been discussed at the board meeting Sunday.
”Maradona is the head coach of Al Wasl and has the complete
authority for the program,” Bin Fahad said. “He will continue with
us. There is no change in his position.”
The Al Wasl board resigned Thursday without giving an
explanation. It was led by Marwan bin Bayat, who was instrumental
in signing Maradona to a two-year deal in May.
