Pele is always dissing Maradona, and his usual line of attack is to question Maradona’s infamous private life. And hey, it’s easy to knock Diego for this as he’s a arch-disaster by anyone’s standards and probably lucky to be alive after all the crap he’s put into his body.
So Pele had another dig at Diego last week, saying this, that and the other and in particular that, “Maradona is a negative example. He was an excellent player, but unfortunately all the world can see what he has done with his life.”
So last night Maradona came back with the round-winning quote:
“He (Pele) lost his virginity with a young boy, so I don’t know what a good example is.”
