Diego Maradona lashes out at rival Al Ain coach
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates—Diego Maradona says an opposing coach's celebration was "not right and unacceptable" after his team lost a league match that ended with supporters being pelted with stones.
Maradona, who took over at United Arab Emirates club Al Wasl in May, was upset with the way Al Ain coach Cosmin Olaroiu celebrated the 1-0 victory on Saturday.
Maradona says "all that happened was not right and unacceptable in professional football."
Al Wasl also says that the Al Ain supporters threw stones at the fans and their cars as they were leaving the match.
Maradona left for Argentina on Sunday to attend the funeral of his mother, Dalma Salvadora Franco de Maradona. She died Saturday.
