Diego Maradona’s rather well-paid gig at Al Wasl is likely to supply plenty of bizarre videos and so it has proved once again in just his second game in charge.
A week ago, we featured a host of clips as Diego Maradona’s charges fell to a 4-3 defeat to Al Jazira with a noticeable lack of defensive organisation.
El Diego’s second match as Al Wasl coach was a lot more successful as they stormed to a 3-0 win over Emirates thanks to a very fine opener by Mariano Donda and a brace from Essa Ali. (Highlights here.)
The big talking point though came before the match as Maradona attempted to have his picture taken by a poster on the side of the pitch.
A number of fans attempted to lift up the poster to get a sight of Argentina’s 1986 World Cup winning captain much to the chagrin of the great man who eventually snapped by aiming his majestic left foot at one of the supporters.
Footage of Diego Maradona kicking a fan before his first win as Al Wasl coach is here. Longer footage of the incident is on this video.
