Maradona not welcome

One man who probably won’t be at Friday’s World Cup draw is Argentina coach Diego Maradona, who has been warned to stay away by FIFA.

Maradona, who lifted the trophy in 1986, is currently serving a two-month ban from all soccer activities imposed by the world governing body after an expletive-filled rant at a news conference following Argentina’s decisive World Cup qualifier against Uruguay.

Maradona has already stated he would not be attending the event, but FIFA was responding to reports this week suggesting he may attempt to gain entry to the proceedings as a journalist.

His suspension ends on January 15.
