Maradona attacks FIFA leadership ‘dinosaurs’

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 was in Dubai on Saturday 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 the re-relection of President Sepp Blatter ”who has never

kicked a football.” Maradona said an ex-soccer player should be in

charge but did not suggest anyone.

Maradona hasn’t coached since leading his country to the 2010

World Cup quarterfinals. His contract was not renewed after the

World Cup.

The Dubai club has not provided any details of the contract, and

Maradona denied reports he is being paid $10 million.
