The Times

On 5th July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-record fee. For seven years all hell broke loose. The world’s most celebrated football icon and the most passionate but dangerous city in Europe were a perfect match for each other.

On the pitch, he was a genius. Off the pitch, he was treated like a God. The charismatic Argentine loved a fight against the odds and led Napoli to their first-ever title. It was the stuff of dreams. But there was a price… DIEGO could do as he pleased while performing miracles on the pitch but, as time passed, darker days closed in.

Constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from his own personal archive, DIEGO MARADONA is a wild and unforgettable story of God-given talent, glory, despair and betrayal, of corruption and ultimately redemption.
