DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES (AP) - Diego Maradona has left Dubai for Argentina on Sunday to attend the funeral of his mother Dalma Salvadora Franco, who died a day earlier after a short illness.

Al Wasl, the club Maradona coaches, did not say when he would return. The team’s assistants and technical staff will be in charge until he got back. The next match is Friday against Emirates.

Maradona signed a two-year contract with the Dubai-based club this year.
