The UAE club said management held a three-hour meeting with Maradona on Thursday in which he acknowledged his “recent outbursts were not in the best interests of the team” and that he would not be leaving Al Wasl “under any circumstances.”

The former Argentina great signed a two-year contract with the club in May. But as the team fell to seventh in the UAE league, Maradona grew frustrated with what he said was the club’s failure to provide him with players that allowed him to compete.

The club said future signings would be considered at a later date.
