Maradona loses FIFA ambassadorial role
Argentine football legend, Diego Maradona has been removed as an ambassador for FIFA and will no longer be paid over his poor conduct during the Argentina and Nigeria match.
The former Ballon d’Or and World Cup winner had celebrated Argentine’s second goal by raising his middle finger at fans who were trolling him when the score was at 1-1 draw.
FIFA had considered his behaviour embarrassing and hence will no longer be entitled to the fee he does receives from the world soccer governing body for bringing the spotlight to any world cup match he witnessed live.
He has also been urged to be of good behaviour in the remaining games he’s going to watch at the world cup if he is to avoid a possible stadium ban.
