Maradona has never been a massive fan of France or its former players; here is what he had to say about them.

"We all know what the French are like and Platini, as a Frenchman, thinks he knows it all."

The Argentine showing his side of good sportsmanship!

"I was waiting for my teammates to embrace me and no one came, I told them, 'Come hug me or the referee isn't going to allow it.'"

Diego Maradona wasnt happy that he had to share the Player of the Century award with Pele.

"The people voted for me. Now they want me to share the prize with Pele. I'm not going to share the prize with anybody."

Diego talking about life as a father.

"My legitimate kids are Dalma and Giannina. The rest are a product of my money and mistakes."
