I actually enjoyed the 98 coked up version... marvellous... great footballer... massive cheat tho. 

I think that was 94 USA wasn’t it?  He was long gone by France 98 with that Owen goal and Becks kick out, same as Gaza who played in the qualifiers for 98 but Hoddle dropped him

Never forgave him for "that" incident.

However, one of the top 5 players of all time. A character that will be sadly missed.

Like all Argentinians; he was very passionate about his home country. The "Boca" is a poor deprived area in Buenos Aires. The whole place is like a shrine to Maradonna, well worth a visit. There will be many tears shed there tonight.

Something that most players have done anyway.

Yes,,, all pros have fouled someone, loat their temper at some stage.

maradona was a genius, and geniuses are often flawed... but with his lifestyle his heart giving out was inevitable. 
for those of us of a certain age though,,,, he was our messi, as a kid to watch football of him was like watching someone from another planet

Just goes to show Pele was right to stick to Viagra rather than moving to harder drugs.

Incredible player. Watch the documentary - it’s phenomenal and goes through both the football and the mafia side.


Harder the better for Pele, surely? 😜

Documentary was fantastic. Not absolving from any responsibility, but it explains how he got drawn into the world of drugs. 

RIP Diego.

Someone’s got a problem on their hands up there if Maradona and George Best get in a room together. 

RIP Diego. It is the likes of you that give football it’s unexplainable, incomparable magic. 

Good luck getting the football from them!
