Diego Maradona back in management

Diego Maradona has been appointed as coach of Al-Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates.

The former Argentina star, now 56, has been out of management since being sacked by Dubai's Al-Wasl in 2012 but has now found a new role in the UAE second division.

A statement on the club's Twitter feed on Sunday read: "Officially: Maradona as coach of Fujairah".

Maradona himself wrote on his official Facebook page: "I want to tell you that I'm the new coach of Al-Fujairah SC, in the second division of the United Arab Emirates."

Attaching a picture of himself posing with an Al-Fujairah shirt with his name and his famous number 10 on the back, he added: "Here are my new colours!"
