Diego Maradona Appointed as Manager of Dubai’s Al Wasl on 2-Year Contract
The 50-year-old has a two-season contract, Al Wasl said today in an e-mailed statement. Financial terms weren’t disclosed, although the team said the value of the contract is “worthy of the stature and reputation” of Maradona.
Maradona last year coached Argentina during the World Cup, the most watched sporting event, in South Africa. He was captain of the team in 1986 when Argentina beat West Germany 3-2 in the final.
