Diego Maradona was involved in a brawl with some supporters of Al Shabab Club just after his team’s game against them on March 29, 2012.
As per www.sport360: “Diego Maradona, manager of Al Wasl, was involved in an ugly confrontation at the end of the Pro League game with Al Shabab this evening.
Shabab had just beaten Dubai rivals Wasl 2-0 at Al Mamzar Stadium when it appeared that Maradona’s girlfriend, Veronica Ojeda, was being abused by a section of the local support. Maradona then rushed into the stand, accompanied by Wasl player Juan Ignacio Mercier, whose girlfriend was in the same section, in an attempt the lead them to safety.
A scuffle broke out in the area nominally reserved for VIPs which as then diffused by security staff. Ms Ojeda was led away looking visibly shaken, while Juan Mercier’s girlfriend appeared to trip on the stairs.”
Sport360 blogger Finlay Donaldson was a witness to the incident as it unfolded. “It seems something was said to Maradona’s girlfriend. He ran up the stand, confronted other fans and that’s when the scuffle broke out.
“Maradona was then escorted down, shouting and gesturing towards the Shabab VIP area.”
