FIFA Gives Diego Maradona Role As Ambassador

Diego Maradona, one of the best players of all time and beholder of the hand of god has become an ambassador to FIFA.  Led by Maradona, Napoli won its first scudetto in 1987.  He also captained the Argentine national team to victory in the 1986 World Cup hosted in Mexico.  His infamous hand of god goal occurred during this World Cup.

It’ll be interesting to see what kind of ambassador Maradona will be.  After Luiz Suarez was banned for biting Georgio Chiellini during a game at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Maradona was so incensed that he said FIFA was run like an incredible mafia.

Perhaps Maradona will lobby FIFA to change their rules so that biting is no longer a major offense punishable by a lengthy ban.
