Maradona: I'll teach my boys to dive properly

Al Wasl boss Diego Maradona has turned on referees after losing to Al Jazira in UAE's Pro-League on Wednesday, and feels he should teach his players how to dive in order to win decisions.

The two sides came into Wednesday's clash occupying the top two spots on the Pro-League table and the importance of the result wasn't lost on a furious Maradona after the game as his side slipped to third.

"Today the referees seemed like they were putting on a show and not the players," Maradona said.

"The refs controlled the game and all their decisions went Jazira’s way. The referees always seem to lean towards Jazira.
