Diego Maradona reached levels of celebrity only Muhammed Ali has matched – Laurens | ESPN FC
ESPN FC’s Gab Marcotti and Julien Laurens (The Gab and Juls Show) reflect on the career and life of Diego Maradona, who died at the age of 60. Marcotti believes although there may be players that will replicate what he did on the pitch, no one will compare to the Argentinian off the pitch. Laurens believes he is one of the most celebrated faces in sport, comparing Maradona with the likes of boxer Muhammed Ali. Both emphasise the problems he had to overcome off the pitch, of which Marcotti explains how Maradona amazingly managed to overcome and even make up for past mistakes, apologising to Brazillian legend Pele.
