The Argentine great stunned the football world by taking the job with the little-known Dubai outfit on Monday, his first post since leaving the Argentine national side after the World Cup.

He told TyC sports channel on Wednesday he was looking forward to a "marvelous experience," but acknowledged the generous contract helped to sway his decision.

The 50-year-old Maradona signed a two-year contract and will take control of the club when the new season starts in September.
Al Wasl, fourth in the domestic league, had been looking for a new coach since sacking Brazilian Sergio Farias in March.
