The greatest ever for me .

 

Mexico '86 is MY World Cup tournament - everything about it is iconic, and Maradona was unbelievable. 

 

What he did for Napoli the team and Naples the city was incredible.

 

He was flawed, probably a criminal even, but he was one of the very best to have played the game.

Probably the only player in football history to put a club on his back and win a top division title almost by himself and put nation on his back and win a World Cup almost by himself.

 

You could argue forever who is better out of Pele, Cruyff, Maradona and Messi but he did all the stuff he did while being completely off his chebs all the time. 

 

What a player.

How do people forget he was a cheat drug addict an most definitely not a roll model. If modern day players step out of line like breaking the rules or even buying houses. They get castigated. Typical English way celebrate someone who cheated us because he has died.
