"After today's match, and having failed to achieve the objective of promotion, Diego Maradona will no longer be the coach of the team," tweeted Moria. The lawyer insisted that the decision "had been a mutual agreement" with the club and that he wished Al Fujairah "the best". Maradona, 57, was appointed coach in May last year with the task of getting Al Fujairah back into the top flight after a two-year absence. However, Friday's result meant that the team cannot finish any higher than third in the table.
