While he might be losing his sleep over Argentina’s chances in the 2018 World Cup, legendary star Diego Maradona was seen enjoying himself in Dubai on Tuesday.

Serving food to the Fujairah boss was Turkish chef Nusret Gokce, aka Salt Bae, who by the looks of it had a wonderful time as well.

And if serving food to the legend wasn’t enough, Salt Bae even got a grand hug from a quite emotional Maradona, which was appreciated by a thunderous applause from the crowd present at the restaurant!

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is ready for the next stage of his career in the MLS.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic feels he still has more to offer football and that his move across the Atlanta Ocean to the LA Galaxy is the right fit for him.

The 36-year-old star forward is making the move to Major League Soccer after a stint with Manchester United for the past two seasons.

Though Galaxy’s five MLS Cups pale in comparison to the Red Devils’ 20 Premier League titles, Ibrahimovic believes he’s choosing the best team in America.

“I decided to sign with Galaxy because I think it’s the right place for me,” Ibrahimovic said. “I think I have a lot to give, I can help them a lot and it’s the best team in the US. So there were no doubts.”

Ibrahimovic joins a list of other big European names to have made the switch to the MLS, which includes David Beckham, David Villa, Andrea Pirlo, Kaka and Ashley Cole.

Sprint king Usain Bolt scores incredible goal in Borussia Dortmund training

Athletics legend Usain Bolt insists he is serious about realising his dream of becoming a top-class footballer after training with Borussia Dortmund.

“I really want to try and make it professionally, to play at a high level,” the sprint superstar told reporters on Friday at the German league club.

“My goal is to make a top team and play in one of the top leagues in the world.”

Having already trained with the team behind closed doors on Thursday, Friday’s open session could be seen as a publicity stunt as both Bolt and Dortmund are sponsored by Puma.

The Bundesliga club live-streamed the training session and in China alone 1.2 million viewers tuned in.

The 31-year-old Bolt insists he is deadly serious about starting a new career – at an age when most footballers are hanging up their boots.

As expected, Bolt, the 100m and 200m world record holder, showed phenomenal pace over the turf.

He was proud of the header he scored in a practice game, but admits having much to learn.

“I’m tall, so it’s one of the things I have practised over the years,” he said of his header with sweat pouring down his face.

“I was working hard out there, I wanted to play my best, move and give the guys options.”

Bolt, a Manchester United fan, is already due to play at the club’s iconic Old Trafford stadium in a charity football match on June 10.

Bolt will line up opposite British pop star Robbie Williams and captain the Soccer Aid World XI in a match to raise funds for the United Nations Children’s Fund, Unicef.
