Got sacked? On Twitter? #Maradona and #AlWasl

The Argentinian footballer and manager Maradona has always be a figure of controversy. A media scum has followed his every move. Maradona’s move to and time at the UAE football club AlWasl has been filled full of incidents. The last headline for the Argentinian may be one of the strangest I have seen for some time.

His fourteen month stint in charge of the football team came to an abrupt end last week when Maradona was fired. This may not be too much of a surprise based on the club’s performances and results. However, how did Maradona first learn he was given the boot? By Twitter.
