Diego Maradona appointed as head coach of UAE's Al Fujairah FC
Love-him-hate-him football icon Diego Maradona has been appointed head coach of second division UAE team Al-Fujairah FC.
The 56-year-old former Argentina World Cup winner and manager made the announcement on his Facebook page, saying: “I want to tell you that I'm the new coach of the al-Fujairah SC, in the second division of the United Arab Emirates. Here's my new colors!”
The post was accompanied by a photograph of himself holding an Al-Fujairah shirt with his name on the back
Arguably the greatest player to ever play the beautiful game, Maradona's managerial career has been less glamourous. He previously had a spell in the UAE in charge of Al Wasl in 2010-2011, where his record was less than stellar (Played: 22, Won: 7, Drew: 5, Lost: 10).
