What a footballer what a character
Oh my god. Never my favourite either. But noone deserves to die ” Young” . I forgive that hand goal.
I still have a rather large "Pique" sticker from Mexico 86. Very cool sticker. Diego made a mess of his life but when he was in his prime on the field no one could stop him. Stay away from the coke kids and dads!Coke es no bueno, ever.
One of the best ever. RIP.
BUT... a very overrated player.
I'm not into football but it doesn't look like he was overrated, what makes you say that ?
you’re confusing him with Messi
One of the greatest players of all. Like most of us, a fallible human.
The 'hand of god' goal still hurts..
I mean... Many people say that he was the greatest of all time. But I don't think it would even be in the top 10. One of the greatest for sure, but not the best. Sorry, just my opinion.
God forgave him with the goal that he did after that.
Ok, it's all subjective i guess.
Very talented with a ball, but sad that he was not a sportsman as well.
So few people who work in the "sports" industry are though.
Yep, that was a classic
Fantastic footballer, but I'll never forget how much the Hand of God 'goal' broke my heart as a 13 year old lad. His other goal in the game was possibly the best I've ever seen. Left our defence in tatters.
Still the best goal ever scored by many football fans....
Warming up to a song played in the stadium:
George Best died: 15 years ago, to the day. What are the chances?
Many examples, of profoundly gifted sporting figures (amongst others) who couldn't handle the resulting adulation pressures. Maradona might have been the most important of them. The era of his dominance, was over too soon.....but predictably, given his personality, habits and choice of advisers.
There have been many ball juggling wizards, in the history of the game. None had Maradona's blend of power and ruthlessness, to go along with these gifts.
I don't like to compare players across generations, so never indulge in talk about 'the best ever' players. It is enough, to have been the undisputed champion, of your time.
