Maradona’s druggie days
Other than being a fabled footballer, Maradona is infamously known worldwide for his drug abuse. During the 1994 world cup which held in the USA, he was sent home for failing his drug test. Diego just played two matches in the tournament before being caught doping on ephedrine. After the incident, he has been in and out of the football scene as a coach.
Maradona dug his own grave through excessive eating, alcoholism, drug abuse leading to a near-death experience in 2000. However, he charmed the management by proving that his skills and love for the game could be handy. He was soon able to convince them to hire him as a coach.
Back home in Argentina, Maradona is hailed as ‘El-Dios’ meaning the god. He made a stunning comeback to the game back in 2008 as a coach. He was able to guide the players to several wins during his time as a coach. The Argentinian people will never forget the major role he played in leading them to victory during the world cup. And for this, he will always be forgiven said his lawyer.
