The greatest. Rest in peace sir.
Maradona is up there with Pele for me with regards to sheer individual brilliance. He lit up world cups and was determined to win it for his country.
Sure Messi and Ronaldo are brilliant, but you could take Maradona in his prime, put him in a pub team to take on anyone, and the pub team would do alright.
Just the name conjures up the magic of football.
Diego the devil, Diego the lunatic, Diego the angel, Diego the one-man team, Diego the supreme conjurer, Diego probably the ultimate football legend.
Mankind has lost one of its most enigmatic sons in the entire history of the human race.
Yes, ... Diego was that good and maybe, sometimes ... that bad.
Not a fan of him personally, but was undoubtedly one of the greatest players ever to play our game.
Very sad news - and so young.I was lucky enough to see Maradona play - and score - against Scotland, in a friendly at sun-kissed Hampden Park in June 1979. Scorcher of a day, seared in my memory. He was a wonder kid, like me just short of his 19th birthday, but just a shade more talented with a ball at his feet.
Who can forget the incredible goal he scored against England en route to winning the 1986 World Cup.
Gone too soon (although we all know why). RIP, one of the greatest players of all time.
Gary Lineker puts his foot in it: England star who faced Diego Maradona at 1986 World Cup says 'hopefully he'll find comfort in the hands of God'
News readers are in tears announcing the news. Just watched a bit there the guy could barely get the words out.He is God to them,They even have a church named after him
Everyone loves him even the rival supporters of Boca Juniors because he was great for their country
That doesn’t happen in our back water of a country
