Maradona Fights, Somersaults, Everything In BetweenBy: The Offside | March 30th, 2012
Only Diego could make this much noise on the United Arab Emirates club scene. His club, Al Wasl, lost their third in four and some of the supporters’ vitriole was flung in the direction of the WAGs section. And then Diego came to the rescue.
“Some people are cowards. They only attack women and have no courage to confront men,” Maradona said according to The Gulf News. “This is the first time I am upset with the fans. If they are angry with me they should know that I did it (climbed the stands) for my (girlfriend) because someone was calling her names. They shouldn’t be angry with me. They should be angry with the people who did this. They are cowards, not real fans.”
And in keeping with his dichotomic image, after a miss on goal in a previous match (perhaps old), he did a somersault on the sideline.
This man needs to be studied by science.
