sad to hear of his passing at the young age of 60. Was a fantastic player.
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.
Sad news simply the best player I have ever seen in my lifetime.
A very objective obituary of the “flawed genius”:
Diego Maradona: Obituary - Argentina's flawed football icon
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.
Some of you will know this.
“ Watching Messi play football is better than sex. It’s a shame he has no personality.”
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.
Amazing what nick nacks one can find on the net.
