    Sad to hear of his passing, but for me his reputation will always be tainted by THAT goal !

    Yep, that's me too.
    Not just 'that's goal but not a great role model post footie either.
    Classic case of consumate skill but flawed character. RIP.

    Sad to hear of his passing but I agree about the "Hand of God" goal. Was a fantastic player but unfortunately he know it

    Impossible now with VAR but if Harry Kane won us the World Cup that way he’d be a hero forever. **** referee/lino and **** goalkeeping.

    A phenomenal player and for much of it he was completely off his nut.

    I'm sorry, but as Eric Cantona reputedly said about someone else, 'Good player, **** man'.

    Genius is so often characterised and countered by human flaws.
    He wasn’t my favourite person/football player... but he was an amazing footballer of his time. Lost count of other professionals who talk of his almost single-handed achievements at Napoli, of his play while Gentile fouled him 23 times to try and stop him without even a booking.
    RIP

    Maradona might still be alive today if he himself had no 'personality'

    Probably, but that’s part of the charm. Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

    Sad news. As others have said...watching him at his best, running with the ball and beating players with ease, is a joy to see...but all that is tainted by 'that goal' and for me, the image of him post-football, which was just sad to see.
