The Dubai Sport Council has insisted that Diego Maradona is not interested in becoming the Montpellier coach next season.
"Maradona is under contract with the Dubai Sport Council, which is a global organisation, and of which he is the global ambassador," Younes Bouklit, a Dubai Sport Council presidential advisor, told Montpellier paper Midi Libre.
"I've spoken to both the president [Swaidan Al Naboodah] and Diego about this matter. There's been no contact. He's absolutely not interested in coaching a Ligue 1 club."
Maradona is currently without a coaching job.
