Maradona secures new coaching job

Almost five years since he last handled any team, soccer legend Diego Maradona has secured a new coaching job.
Over the weekend, United Arab Emirates second-tier club, Al-Fujairah FC, say they have appointed Maradona as their new head coach.
This is the first job for the 56-year-old since he was sacked as manager of UAE side, Al Wasl in July 2012.
Al-Fujairah tweeted a picture of Maradona holding the club’s shirt.
“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.
Among several other accomplishments, Maradona helped Argentina win the World Cup as a player in 1986 and managed his country between 2008-10.​
