Description - Diego Armando Maradona by Harry Harris
The death of Diego Maradona in November 2020 shocked the football world but he left behind a unique legacy following a playing career packed with amazing moments on the pitch and controversy off it. Award-winning football journalist Harry Harris gives his personal perspective on Maradona's life story as one of only a few British writers to have been granted access to arguably the world's greatest ever player. He is helped by World Cup winner Ossie Ardiles who was a close friend of Diego's for most of his life having first seen the boy wonder at close quarters performing football tricks in the warm-up at an international match in 1975 before Diego became a regular in the Argentina side. Harry has captured Ossie's personal recollections of his close friend in graphic detail, and has also compiled a selection of all the worldwide tributes that poured in after his death. As the Daily Mirror chief football writer and one of the most prominent sports journalists of his generation, Harris followed Diego's career with first hand knowledge and experience. He was present in the Azteca stadium when Maradona scored the most controversial and then the greatest goal in World Cup history and was also at the press conference in Dallas in 1994 following a positive drug test. Harry is one of the few global journalists afforded a one-to-one interview with Diego and he gives an account of the remarkable and incredible personal circumstances surrounding that exclusive interview.
