During Argentina’s three games in the Group Stages one man has found himself on television more than everyone else. Mostly waving fingers in the air. Yes, you guessed it right- Diego Maradona.
The infamous former player and manager of the national team has been pictured on a private jet, making a racist gesture to South Korea fans, giving double middle fingers to Nigeria fans and even getting medical help after binging on white wine during the final group game.

He’s been Argentina’s number one fan, sat in a box with his friends and absolutely loving life and it’s no surprise considering he’s being paid £10,000 per game to be there.
Fifa are shelling out £10,000 per match to have the Argentine legend in attendance, coming as part of president Gianni Infantino’s legends scheme, as per Daily Mail.
The concept behind this is to remind viewers of historic moments from the World Cup. Because without Maradona in the stands we’d forget about the goal against England in 86′, not the handball.
We guess will have to watch out for more reactions from this legend especially those that got to do with middle finger salutes.
