For a laff in training, Diego Maradona ordered half of his Argentina squad, including Kun Aguero and Walter Samuel, to line up in goal and ordered the rest to kick footballs at them very hard. Why? Because the ‘victims’ had just lost a training game to the firing squad. That’s El Diego for you – he’s c-c-c-crazy. He’s a maverick. He’s bonkers. You get the idea.

Can you imagine grim-faced Fabio Capello doing something like this? Not a chance.

Fat Diego says:

“Pass me the Hob Nobs, Lionel. Ta.”
