Diego Maradona celebrates the UAE National Day
Football legend Diego Maradona was spotted in the United Arab Emirates on Thursday celebrating the country’s 42nd National Day and Dubai’s Expo 2020 victory.
The Argentinian star was dressed in the typical Emirati men's outfit, commonly known as deshdasha, while dancing on some UAE folkloric songs.
In the video, the former Argentinian footballer is celebrating the country’s National Day alongside former Canadian athlete Benjamin Johnson and other locals.
Maradona has been the head coach of the Dubai football team al-Wasl since May 2011 before being fired a year later by the club’s board of directors.
He is considered by many to be the greatest player to have ever played football, and his career spanned three decades.
