Diego Maradona Jr: Father would be proud of current Argentina team!


The son of Diego Maradona says his father would be proud seeing Argentina in today’s World Cup final.

Diego Junior is currently coaching a team in Italy’s lower categories, Napoli United.

He is experiencing the World Cup like any other Argentinian, even though he still lives in his native Naples and rarely goes to Argentina during the year.

“I’m living it like a ‘loco’, I’m watching all the matches, I’m watching all the news, I want to put the third star on my chest because these kids really deserve it. They are leaving everything for the shirt and I hope it happens,” he said.

When it comes to assessing how his father would feel about this World Cup, Diego Junior has no doubts. He loved his national team and will continue to enjoy it from heaven.

“I’m totally convinced that my dad is proud of the way they are defending the shirt, and the desire they put into it. When you have to play, you play; and when you can’t play well, these kids play? For me, my dad is proud of them up there,” Diego Jr said.
