Like a weeble, it took some going to knock Diego Maradona over – ask Andoni Goikoetxea.
What we have here is a six-minute compilation (including some really rather rare footage) of Maradona in his pomp; weaving, carving and squeezing through hacks and tackles like wild, thin mercury.
In short: it’s a true joy to behold…
We’ll never see another like him. A human being seemingly custom-built for unfettered footballing genius.
How anyone can claim Pele was better than Maradona beggars belief as far as we’re concerned.
Many thanks to one of Pies’ favourite football scribes, Richard Whittal (@RWhittal), for bringing this one to our attention.
