Maradona, who coaches UAE club Al Wasl, has been feuding with Al Ain coach Cosmin Olaroiu since losing an ill-tempered match. The 1986 World Cup-winning Argentine complained that Olaroiu and his staff celebrated the winning goal in an unprofessional manner and he later called Olaroiu rude.

The committee is also slated to hear a complaint from Al Wasl, which accuses Al Ain fans of pelting its fans with stones after the match.

The decision could come Monday but it is unclear what sanctions Maradona would face if found guilty.
