Maradona attacks FIFA ‘dinosaurs’
Football great Diego Maradona says corruption and match-fixing
scandals that have hit FIFA will continue as long as the sport’s
governing body is run by ”dinosaurs.”
The Argentine is in Dubai to sign a two-year contract to coach
the local Dubai Al Wasl club.
Maradona said FIFA had been badly run over the years and
attacked Wednesday’s re-relection of President Sepp Blatter ”who
has never kicked a football.” Maradona, 50, said an ex-footballer
should be in charge but did not suggest anyone.
Maradona hasn’t coached since leading his country to the World
Cup quarterfinals last year. The Dubai club has not provided any
details of the contract and Maradona denied reports he is being
paid $10 million.
