On Friday, international football legend Diego Maradona resigned as coach of the UAE's second division club Al Fujairah after his team failed to gain promotion, his lawyer Matias Morla announced, according to ESPN.
The renowned Argentinian - a former World Cup winner and one of football's most divisive figures - said he was stepping down after a 1-1 draw against Khor Fakkan.
"After today's match, and having failed to achieve the objective of promotion, Diego Maradona will no longer be the coach of the team," Morla posted on his Twitter account.
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 as the first-team coach in May last year with the task of getting Al Fujairah back into the Arabian Gulf League after a two-year absence.
However, Friday's result meant that the team missed out on the automatic promotion to the Arabian Gulf League and will not be able to finish any higher than third in the table.
This was his second managerial spell in the UAE, after a year in charge of Al-Wasl.
With S.S.C. Napoli, Maradona won the Serie A title twice in addition to winning the 1986 World Cup with his country. His career also included stops at Argentinos Juniors, Barcelona, Sevilla, Newell's Old Boys, and Boca Juniors.
