Diego Maradona fouls grandson

You have probably never seen Argentine footballer Diego Maradona in this light, playing a game of garden football with grandson Benjamin Aguero Maradona.

Yet the five-year-old wasn’t treated any differently while having a kick about with his grandfather.

Despite missing the goal the first time, Maradona goes back in, and misses again, fouling the tiny keeper.

Benjamin deflects both tries, the second ending up with the waiting family dog.

Maradona magic

Son of Manchester City player Sergio Aguero Maradona, Benjamin obviously shares in the family’s sporting talent. Sergio recently uploaded a father-son Instagram shot.

But since retirement, Diego Maradona has turned his talents to other areas, in this Youtube video filmed while in Dubai, the retired player shakes his hips to “Cuando estes con el” by the group “Los del Fuego”.

Maradona has had a busy few weeks, after meeting with famed “Mano de Díos” (Hand of God) referee, Ali Bennaceur, 25-years after his handball during the 1986 World Cup.

The striker tapped the ball over the head of goalkeeper Peter Shilton during the Argentina vs. England match.

“Before the game, Fifa gave us clear guidelines: ‘If your colleague is better placed than you are, his decision should take precedence.’ That’s what I did: my assistant did not raise his flag,” Maradona told magazine So Foot.
