Maradona issues quit threat

Al Wasl coach Diego Maradona has claimed he will quit the club if he is not backed in the transfer market.

Maradona moved to the club in search of a new challenge, but has struggled in the first season of his two-year contract in Dubai. And the Argentine legend insists that he was promised six new players, but only two arrived.

"We need more players. In the beginning the agreement was for six players, but I have only received two, and one has left, so they have not fulfilled what was agreed," Maradona told reporters. "If the management cannot fulfil my needs then I will be ready to leave."

"I will talk to the management, discuss the requirements and see if they can fulfil these promises. I am not asking for a raise, a single dollar extra.

"I just want to be able to compete and if I cannot be competitive with my team, then I don't deserve to be doing this. I cannot compete if I cannot get the players I want.

"I still have a year on my contract, but I will be very sad if I have to leave because I will feel that I did not get the support I wanted. I came here to work, to achieve good results and compete. This is the most important thing to me and it saddens me that I am not able to achieve that."

Maradona, the father-in-law of Manchester City's Sergio Aguero, also hinted that perhaps it was time to quit altogether, saying: "Maybe after being 31 years in this industry it's time to do something else and be with my grandson."
