Argentina legend pens two-year deal with Dubai club Al Wasl, according to reports

Diego Maradona is set for a return to coaching as reports from Argentina claim he has agreed to coach Dubai-based Al Wasl.

The World Cup winner has been out of work since leaving his post with the Argentine national team last summer.

But TyCsports comments that Maradona has signed a two-year deal with the side from the United Arab Emirates League.

The former Napoli and Barcelona forward was recently in Dubai as a guest at the inauguration of a medical centre for young footballers, and it was on this visit where he supposedly met with Al Wasl directors to discuss an agreement.

Earlier this week he was in Russia, taking part in a friendly for the unveiling of Terek Grozny's new stadium.
