BY foxsports • October 9, 2011

Diego Maradona has apologised to fans for Al Wasl's 5-0 thrashing by rival Dubai in the Etisalat Cup.

The football great and Al Wasl coach says Saturday's defeat ''is but a small bump in the road ... the season is long and this is just one match.''

Maradona conceded it was a ''big defeat'' after two consecutive wins, but said it was time to look ahead.

Al Wasl reaffirmed its ''full faith'' in Maradona, who coached Argentina to the 2010 World Cup quarterfinals.
