ASTONISHING footage of Diego Maradona pulling a moonie during a home video is going viral hours after Argentina celebrated 34 years of the legend’s Hand of God goal against England.
The fallen idol lets his backside do the talking on this occasion as he stumbles around the dance-floor with his ex-girlfriend, Veronica Ojeda.
It was not immediately clear when the footage was taken.
Former Naples and Barcelona star Maradona scored two goals to put England out of the 1986 World Cup on June 22 1986.
One was the cheat goal that still rankles most fans and the other a wonder goal famed as one of the best ever which involved him slotting the ball past Peter Shilton after taking on and beating half the rival team.
Maradona’s life in-between has been marked by a series of scandals involving drug and alcohol abuse and an alleged string of illegitimate children.
The retired footballer is currently managing Argentinian top-flight side Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, saved by relegation following the suspension of the country’s football season because of the coronavirus crisis.
One Twitter user who posted the video online said: “I still can’t work process everything that’s happened between the two images, one of Maradona leaving the English in his wake to score the greatest goal in history and the other showing off his backside while he dances cumbia in a video which has gone viral.”
Spanish TV and newspapers have been among media flagging up the footage and calling it a “new controversy” which is causing more concern about Maradona, even though the video is not recent but is not thought to have been made public before.
Mexican journalist Ignacio Suarez, referring to the song called ‘Bombon Asesino’ which Maradona was filmed dancing to, joked: “Between the song Maradona is dancing to and the coronavirus pandemia, I’m not sure which one is more grotesque and terrifying.”
Another Twitter user, writing on an unofficial account named after famous Argentinian TV journalist Jorge Lanata which is not the star’s official Twitter, said: “Once you used to give us goals but today you just cause us shame Maradona.”
Argentinian media signalled the person who posted the footage as a well-known journalist born in the same city as Lionel Messi, although it could not be immediately confirmed today he was behind the post.
One Diego Maradona fan criticised him for publishing the video, saying: “Does it really matter to anyone what a famous person is doing in his private life?
“Do you not think he has children and grandchildren who will feel bad?”
