The club described Maradona’s actions as “what any honourable person would do” after he stormed into the stands during the 2-0 defeat at Al Shabab. Maradona left the touchline after noticing the altercation in the VIP area before he had to be restrained by several police.
Maradona, 51, later labelled the fans as “cowards” on Gulf News before his Dubai-based club yesterday issued an apology.
“The management of Al Wasl Football Company denounce the harassment suffered by the family and guests of Diego Maradona, head coach of Al Wasl Football Club in Al Shabab’s stadium during the last match,” a statement on the club’s website read.
