(CNN) -- Argentina coach Diego Maradona will learn his fate this weekend following world ruling body FIFA's hearing into the football legend's foul-mouthed tirade last month.
The 49-year-old let rip in a television interview with a series of scathing comments aimed at his critics after Argentina scraped into the World Cup finals with a 1-0 win away to Uruguay on October 14.
The 1986 World Cup winner had been heavily criticized after a string of poor results in qualifying matches, having taken over as national coach from Alfio Basile a year ago.
The hearing will take place at FIFA's Zurich headquarters in Switzerland on Sunday afternoon, and Maradona -- who faces a possible five-match ban -- will be allowed to state his case.
If he is found guilty, it will severely impact on his preparations for next year's finals in South Africa.
The hearing will be held the day after the international friendly match between Spain and Argentina in Madrid.
