Diego Maradona Returns To Management With Obscure Second Division Club

Diego Maradona's managerial career has never really taken off, but he's sure giving it a go.

The iconic Argentinean managed a few local sides before taking the plunge into international football.

Maradona took over as Argentina boss in 2008 after chucking his hat into the ring.

He guided 'La Albiceleste' to the 2010 World Cup but were booted out by Germany in the quarter-finals.

The AFA subsequently did not renew his contract which left a bitter dispute between Maradona and the board.

Though he returned to management by heading to Dubai taking the vacancy at Al Wasl in July 2012.


You'd think getting sacked by some random team in the middle east would put you off, but not Maradona.

That's because he's been appointed as the new gaffer of UAE second division side Al Fujairah.

The club will be hoping to secure promotion back to the top flight under the tutelage of the World Cup winner.

Maradona, 56, has reportedly been handed a one-year contract to turn around the clubs fortune.

Will Al Fujairah be able to return to the first division? Time will tell.
