Video: Diego Maradona plays for Tottenham
Argentinean legend turns out for an English club for one day
As a favour to his friend and international colleague, Diego Maradona agreed to play in Ossie Ardiles’ 1986 testimonial, which saw Tottenham beat Inter Milan 2-1.
The game – for which Maradona arrived late after being personally driven from his hotel by Ardiles – took place just a few weeks before the 1986 World Cup. Somehow, we don’t think the Argentinean coach would have received such a warm reception at an English ground in the weeks that followed.
