Maradona to become UAE head coach?
Zeenews Sports Bureau
Abu Dhabi: If United Arab Emirates Football Association president is to be believed, Maradona is in contention of taking over the post of national football team’s head coach.
"As Maradona is within the family of UAE football, we can`t neglect or overlook such a name," Yousuf Al Serkal was quoted as saying by Reuters.
Maradona, who won the World Cup as a player in 1986 and coached Argentina to the quarter-finals of the 2010 edition in South Africa, is now working at the Al Wasl club in Dubai.
The UAE has been without a head coach since Srecko Katanec was sacked last year following successive defeats in their opening 2014 World Cup qualifying matches.
