Diego Maradona has been dismissed as manager of al-Wasl football team in Dubai, officials at the club said on Tuesday.
"Al-Wasl announced today that they are officially terminating the whole technical staff's contracts including the coach, Diego," al-Wasl said on its Twitter account.
Maradona has been coaching al-Wasl since May 2011 under a two-year contract.
The Argentine star went to Dubai after his contract was not renewed to manage Argentina in July 2010, after the national team was knocked out of the World Cup on a 4-0 defeat to Germany in the quarter-finals.
