Diego Maradona to be investigated for verbal argument with fans

 

Mexico's football federation (FMF) will open a disciplinary investigation against Diego Maradona for his verbal spat against fans during the second leg of the Ascenso MX final between Dorados de Sinaloa and Atletico San Luis.

Maradona, who coaches Dorados, was involved in a post-match argument with Atletico's supporters following Sunday's second leg.

Diego Maradona had to watch from the stands as his Dorados lost the Ascenso MX title to Atletico San Luis.

Maradona watched from the stands due to a suspension and a video on social media showed the former Argentina manager losing his temper after being shouted at as he made his way across the VIP area.

"Come here! I want him to tell me that to my face. I want you to tell me to my face," Maradona yelled, in quotes reported by ESPN Deportes, while being restrained by security staff.

San Luis won the game 4-2 (4-3 on aggregate) to claim Mexico's second division title.
