Football legend Diego Armando Maradona will return to coaching as he was appointed by UAE side Al-Fujairah to lead the team starting next season.

Maradona will be replacing Egyptian coach Tarek Mostafa who took over the team for the last three games in the season after the club announced the sacking of the Bosnian Džemal Hadžiabdić better known as Jamal Haji.

“I want to tell you that I am the new coach of Al-Fujairah SC, in the second division of the United Arab Emirates,” Maradona added on his Facebook page. This will be the second adventure for the Argentinian coach in the UAE after coaching Al Wasl in the 2011/2012 season.

Maradona began his coaching career with short spells at Mandiyu de Corrientes and Racing Club in the mid-90s but did not take charge of a team again until he was assigned as coach of Argentina in 2008. He led his country to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, however, his contract was not renewed after Argentina were beaten 4-0 by Germany in the quarterfinals.
