Budapest, Hungary :

FIFA has opened an investigation into Argentina coach Diego Maradona's profanity-filled tirade on live television following a World Cup qualifying win over Uruguay.

FIFA spokesman Nicolas Maingot said on Wednesday: "The disciplinary case has been opened. We have no further details for the moment."

After the win, which earned Argentina a spot at next year's World Cup in South Africa, Maradona directed crude expletives at his media critics. Maradona called it an outburst and said he had nothing to apologize for.
