The Myanmar Times - - Sport -

ANAGER Diego Maradona con­fronted op­po­si­tion fans af­ter his Do­ra­dos team lost to Atletico San Luis 4-2 in the sec­ond leg of the Mex­ico sec­ond­di­vi­sion fi­nal.

Do­ra­dos of Si­naloa won the first leg 1-0, and saw a 2-0 lead slip away on Sun­day af­ter an own-goal.

Maradona used a walkie-talkie while watch­ing the fi­nal from the stands be­cause he had been banned from the field dur­ing the first leg for ar­gu­ing.

Lo­cal me­dia on Mon­day pub­lished videos of an in­fu­ri­ated Maradona hurl­ing un­print­able Mex­i­can and Ar­gen­tine in­sults and try­ing to punch some­one ap­par­ently while leav­ing the sta­dium in the north-cen­tral city of San Luis Po­tosi.

The Mex­i­can soc­cer fed­er­a­tion said Mon­day that it is in­ves­ti­gat­ing Maradona’s ac­tions.

The Ar­gen­tine great took over as coach in Septem­ber, when Cu­li­a­can­based Do­ra­dos was at the bot­tom of the stand­ings with just three points af­ter six rounds. – AP
