Cancer Diagnosis Forces Metsu To Step Down As Coach Of Al Wasl
Published October 29, 2012
NO MARADONA RETURN: In Dubai, Ashley Hammond reported that Diego Maradona is "not about to make a dramatic return" to coach Al Wasl. Word of a possible Maradona return had been fueled by the fact that he has "maintained good relations with his former employers" after taking up an ambassadorial role for the Dubai Sports Council. He also still has a home in Jumeirah hotels. A spokesperson for the club "refused to rule out the possibility of the board reverting back to the resumes of unsuccessful candidates from the time Metsu was appointed, but he adamantly denied that Maradona would be making a comeback anytime soon" (GULF NEWS, 10/28).
