Maradona to face hearing

FIFA have announced the disciplinary hearing into Diego Maradona’s comments after the World Cup qualifier against Uruguay will be held this weekend.

Maradona let loose with a foul-mouthed tirade aimed at his critics after his side clinched their place at next summer’s finals with a 1-0 win in Montevideo on October 14.

The former World Cup-winning player could be handed a touchline ban when FIFA meet to discuss the case behind closed doors in Zurich on Sunday.

Maradona, whose side face Spain in a friendly in Madrid on Saturday, will be granted a hearing at the meeting in Switzerland.
