OFFICIAL: Al-Wasl, there is an agreement with Maradona

The news is now on the web portal of Dubai clubs: Diego Armando Maradona is the new coach of Al-Wasl. His engagement was confirmed by Vice President Marwane Ben Bayatt.
Maradona agrees two-year deal to become head coach at Al Wasl - report

Diego Maradona is believed to have signed a two-year contract to become head coach of Dubai-based club Al Wasl, The National reports.

The Argentine legend is thought to have held talks with chief executive Ashraf Ahmad Mohammed and chairman Marwan Juma Beyat over the weekend, before accepting what has been described as a 'lucrative' agreement to take charge of the team.

Maradona's imminent appointment has come as a surprise, as last month Al Wasl officials announced their decision to replace the outgoing Sergio Farias with a European coach.

However, the 1986 World Cup winner is thought to be on the verge of taking the helm, and the club are expected to confirm his appointment today.

The former Napoli and Barcelona playmaker has been out of the game since stepping down from the Argentine national team post after the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
