After his team Al-Wasl’s defeat against Al-Shabab by 2-0 on Thursday in Dubai, Diego Maradona confronted some of Al-Shabab’s fans who were directing threats towards the wives of Al-Wasl players, including his own wife.
The women were safely escorted out of the stadium by police, while Maradona was restrained by security and walked into the dressing room eventually.
Commenting on the events, Maradona stated: “The Shabab fans are cowards. They only attack women and have no courage to confront men. We accept everything in football, but do not accept men swearing at women. I accept defeat but I am not happy with what happened against the fans tonight. Any fans upset by this should know that I was only there to defend my wife and I am only against the people who were directly insulting my wife.”
