IN PICTURES – The most human Maradona, off the pitch


“The correct word is love. I began to love Maradona when I was 17 years old, I played in Naples and called him lei. And I continued for thirty years. I esteemed him, I think I knew him like few others but loved him like many: it was impossible not to do it . For his deep and overflowing humanity. For his closeness to everyone. He was a generous born. A person who gave himself without saving, every day and every day. He was a god, but no one was more human than him. ” (Ciro Ferrara)

I started loving Maradona when I was 17

Ciro Ferrara

This photo gallery pays tribute to the human D10S, outside the field, where he lived everything to the fullest, inordinately. Without ceasing to love the ball like a little boy, from “Pibe de Oro”.
