Rep lost Maradona shirt


Johnny Rep exchanged shirt with Diego Maradona in 1979, after the friendly international match between the Netherlands and Argentina, but he lost that shirt.

"I didn't attach much value to that. I often trained in the shirt when I later played with the amateurs. I think it was once stolen from my bag. Too bad, but otherwise I didn't really care. Although, now I would have liked it. It would probably have made quite a bit of money.

Friend Maradona lashes out at medical staff


Matias Morla, lawyer and good friends with Diego Maradona, lashes out hard on Twitter at the people who had to supervise the Argentinian medically.

"It is inexplicable that Maradona has been without the attention of the medical staff for twelve hours. It took half an hour for the ambulance to arrive. Criminal and idiocy."

Morla therefore calls for an investigation into the events surrounding Maradona's death.

English goalkeeper: 'He was great, but had no sportsmanship'


Peter Shilton was the English goalkeeper in 1986 who was beaten by the 'hand of God'.

According to him, Maradona is a legend, but lacked sportsmanship.

"He challenged me in the air. He knew that heading would not work, so he hit the ball with his hand. Just cheating. Maradona looked back twice, waited for his goal to be disallowed. He knew what he had done. Argentina won the match there, "Schilton writes in his

Daily Mail

column 

about the goal in question.

"What I find disappointing is that he never really apologized. Never said he cheated. He used the term 'hand of God' to his advantage, that's not correct."
