What's Maradona Up To?
Always worth checking-in with Maradona to see what's on the maestro's mind. He never disappoints.
He's in combative mood, taking on the press once again:
'Many journalists should apologize to the players. I'm not suggesting you drop your trousers, but it would be honest and great so we all get along better.'
After his pledge to run around the Obelisco in BA naked, he's clearly got something of an obsession with nudity.
But give the guy a break - he just wants a little respect:
'I am turning 50 and I am not bitter. But I get annoyed when people don't respect my players.
It isn't easy going from being nobodies back home to winning three matches at a World Cup.
"At a training camp, we had to swallow what you (journalists) all said about being a disaster, the worst Argentine team you had ever seen.
"All of a sudden we're an excellent team... the most handsome people in the 'barrio'!"
Messi and co will be looking to strut their stuff around the neighbourhood against Mexico on Sunday to try and gain a few more admiring glances. Little doubt that all eyes will be on Diego.
