Finally the day came and Diego Maradona had his first practice as head coach of Al Wasl, a team of United Arab Emirates. Together with his assistants Héctor Enrique and Roberto Trotta, and collaborator and translator Ali Hassan, led a nearly two-hour practice where he was formally introduced to his new site.

Such was the admiration generated by the presence of the idol that there were hundreds of fans witnessing the practice team, something unprecedented for the club. In addition, Diego took time to joke, greet people and make some "bed bugs" with the ball, a trademark on it

So, Maradona is preparing for the start of the league in that country, which until now had two American reinforcements, the Uruguayan Juan Manuel Olivera, from Peñarol, and Chile's Edson Puch, who came from the University of Chile.

Note that the star had reached the Arab country on Wednesday, where he was received by the president of his new club, Marwin Bin Bayat.
