    Al-Wasl Coach Diego Maradona Attacks FIFA 'Dinosaurs' After Sepp Blatter Is Re-Elected As President

    New Al Wasl coach Diego Maradona has launched a scathing attack on Fifa, comparing members of football's governing body to dinosaurs.

    The Argentine icon was speaking at a press conference in Dubai in which he was introduced as head tactician of the United Arab Emirates club.

    Fifa have been hit by a corruption scandal in recent weeks, with executive members Jack Warner and Mohamed Bin Hammam receiving suspensions while president Sepp Blatter has been re-elected in his position unopposed.

    However, the 1986 World Cup winner is furious with the footballing governing body and believes a major shake-up is needed.

    "Fifa is a big museum. They are dinosaurs who do not want to relinquish power. It's always going to be the same," 'El Pelusa' fired, in Saturday's presentation.

    The former Argentina coach continued his rant at Fifa, stating he wishes the current Fifa members resign from their positions.

    "It doesn't surprise me that Blatter has been re-elected because they only look inwards. They will all be there until they are 105 years old. I hope they resign, but don't get your hopes up that this will happen," he added.

    "Many people agree with me that things are not clear in football. The situation at Fifa is still the same, football is run by people who do not understand football."

    Maradona has signed a two-year deal with Al Wasl thought to be worth around €8 million.
