Dubai - Argentinian football legend Diego Maradona will return to coaching Al-Wasl after he was successfully treated for kidney stones at a Dubai hospital, the club said Monday.

"Maradona is well and in good health. He will rest for one day (Tuesday) before supervising training on Wednesday," said the statement by Al-Wasl.

The 51-year-old began feeling pain after the club's match on Saturday and was later admitted to hospital, an Al-Wasl spokesperson said on Sunday, adding that the treatment was successful.

"Maradona has insisted on watching on video the game between Sharjah and Bani Yas that took place yesterday (on Sunday) in preparation for the coming game between Al-Wasl and Sharjah" scheduled for January 23, said the statement.

The 1986 World Cup-winner signed a contract with Al-Wasl in June, 11 months after he was dismissed as manager of Argentina's national team.
