Maradona's Career

Maradona began his career with Argentinos Juniors, before moving to Boca Juniors. He later transferred to Barcelona for a then world-record fee of £5 million. He won several trophies with the club, including the Copa del Rey and the European Cup Winners' Cup.

In 1984, he was signed by Napoli for a then world-record fee of £six and a half million. Maradona had many lucrative offers but chose Napoli as he would put it in his words that he wanted to "defend the poorest". And he did so. Maradona helped the club win several trophies, including their only two Serie A titles in 1987 and 1990. He also won the Coppa Italia and the UEFA Cup. He is considered a godly figure in Naples. Napoli even renamed their stadium after Maradona post his death to show the love and respect they had for the legend.

Maradona spent a short season-long spell with Sevilla before he returned to Argentina and eventually retired with Boca Juniors. He scored over 250 goals in his club career cementing his name as one of the all-time greats.

The Hand of God

In the quarter-finals, he scored both goals in a victory over England that became known as the "Hand of God" goal and the "Goal of the Century". The first was an unpenalized handball that he later admitted was deliberate, while the second was a 60-meter (200 ft) dribble past five England players before he slotted the ball into the net. As a result of his performance, Argentina went on to win the World Cup

He is often considered to be the greatest footballer to have ever lived. In 2000, he was named FIFA Player of the Century, and in 2010, he was inducted into the FIFA World Football Hall of Fame. In addition, he was voted as the best player of the 20th century by IFFHS.

After the World Cup, Maradona's career was plagued by injuries and drug abuse. He retired from professional football in 1997.

In 2010, Maradona was hired as the head coach of the Argentine national team. He helped lead the team to the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup before they were defeated by Germany.
