    Default Maradona loses cool, kicks out at fan

    Diego Maradona, whose latest role in a turbulent career is coaching the United Arab Emirates club side Al-Wasl, was under scrutiny on Friday after kicking out at a fan in Dubai.
    A video posted on YouTube showed Argentina's 1986 World Cup winning captain attempting to pose for a pre-match photo-shoot in front of a banner hanging on the wire mesh separating fans from the pitch.
    After shooing away some over-enthusiastic supporters who tried to approach him, Maradona appeared to grow annoyed at a fan who persistently lifted the banner from behind.

    Maradona apologised to the fan according to local media. Al- Wasl went on to win the game against promoted Emirates 3-0 in the second round of the Etisalat Cup. "I am emotional, this is my nature.
    I've always been like this as a player and coach. Sometimes I feel like I'm a player of al-Wasl," he was quoted as saying in Abu Dhabi-based sports website.
    Maradona, one of the world's greatest ever players, has often endured problems on and off the pitch, including arrests, suspensions and spells in rehab.
    He joined al-Wasl earlier this year after losing his job as Argentina's national coach when they were beaten 4-0 by Germany in the quarter finals of the World Cup last year.
