Maradona still punching above his weight

Al Wasl coach Diego Maradona and Al Shabab have escaped punishment from the UAE Football Association’s Disciplinary Committee after last week’s scuffle in the stands.

Maradona had to be escorted from the terraces by police, after he confronted Al Shabab fans who allegedly had abused his wife, Veronica Ajeda, and player Juan Mercier’s partner.

Meanwhile Al Shabab claimed Ajeda and Mercier’s partner initiated the trouble by abusing their Brazilian player Ciel.

However, despite the scenes, the Disciplinary Committee opted not the punish either club.

An Al Wasl spokesperson told The National: “We expected some action against Al Shabab, but having said that, we fully accept the decision of the disciplinary committee and they are the best people to decide.”
