5 highlights of Don Diego’s Al Wasl tenure.
1. Kicking an annoying as heck fan in the hand. To be kicked by the man who made the Hand of God a part of footballing lore could be considered a tribute.
2. His heartfelt condolences to the father of Theyab Awana, the UAE hero who died in a car accident.
3. Continuing his running feud with Pele, calling himself the Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards, and Bono of football after the Brazilian great said he was the Beethoven of the sport. Pele should just “crawl back into his sarcophagus.”
4. Defending his goalkeeper Majed Nasser after he struck Al Ahly’s coach Quique Sanchez Flores in the back of the head claiming the Spanish coach incited his player. Nasser was suspended for 17 games.
5. Climbing into the stands to confront Al Shabab fans for verbally abusing his wife. That was absolutely the right thing to do.
