‘STAY AWAY,’ FIFA to Maradona

FIFA has written to the Argentine football federation to make sure coach Diego Maradona stays away from Friday`s World Cup draw.



Cape Town: FIFA has written to the Argentine
football federation to make sure coach Diego Maradona stays
away from Friday`s World Cup draw.

FIFA has said Maradona`s two-month suspension for an
expletive-filled rant at a news conference extends beyond
matches and also includes such activities as the draw.

FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke said today he sent a
letter to the Argentine delegation to say "be aware that he is
banned and we are asking you to make sure that he is not
coming."

Maradona will miss Argentina`s Dec 16 friendly against
the Czech Republic, but he avoided sanctions that would have
kept him from coaching at the World Cup.
