Al Wasl coach Diego Maradona will be without his goalkeeper Majid Nasser for the next 17 games after he was caught on camera whacking Al Ahli coach Quique Sanchez Flores (of Valencia, Atletico Madrid and  ‘Dr House’ fame) across the back of the head in a fit of prissy rage after the latter side put the former out of the Etisalat Cup on Saturday night.

Flores was unhurt but that didn’t stop Al Wasl coming down on Nasser like a ton of rock-solid metal bricks, with vice-chairman Swaidan Al Naboodah announcing that the player would be suspended for at least the next 17 games for his ‘violent act’ (in order to prevent him from playing a part in the remainder of the Pro League season) while the club are willing to listen to Nasser’s explanation before they outline the full extent of his punishment.
