Maradona refuses to give in on demands

SoccerNews in General Soccer News 14 Feb 2012


Al Wasl coach Diego Maradona has continued to vent his frustration at the apparent lack of transfer funds available at the Dubai outfit.

In response to last week’s outbursts, where he threatened to leave unless he was allowed more money to spend, Maradona refused to apologise and was adamant he needed increased funds to bring success to his team.

“I want to be able to compete, I want to be able to fight for the top spots, and this is basically my right and I still stick by my opinion,” he told reporters.

“We talked about some of the challenges facing Al Wasl team, we’re trying to find solutions to benefit the team.”

It was reported Maradona held a meeting with Al Wasl chairman Marwan Bin Bayat on Sunday, and the Argentine legend was confident of leading the club to the summit of the UAE Pro League in the future.

“I support Mr Marwan and I know that the Board of Directors have certain ambitions and we want to help him achieve these objectives,” he said.

“I have 34, 35 years of experience in football and there isn’t a problem that I haven’t faced and I have a lot to bring to Al Wasl as far as experience is concerned and that’s what was discussed and there was a mutual agreement of the objectives set for next season.”

Al Wasl are currently fifth in the UAE Pro League, nine points behind leaders Al Ain.
