Dubai:

Diego Maradona says he'd be open to coaching the United Arab Emirates national team.

The Argentine great, who since May has coached the UAE professional side Al Wasl, has been mentioned as a potential candidate in the local media after Srecko Katanec of Slovenia was fired following the team's 3-1 loss to Lebanon in September.

The UAE have since lost three matches under an interim coach.

Maradona did not say Wednesday whether the country's soccer association had approached him about the job, though he said he would accept the post "with pleasure."

The 1986 World Cup-winning Argentine said he could envision doing both jobs.
