Former Argentine football star, Diego Maradona on Tuesday lashed out at FIFA president Sepp Blatter and his UEFA counterpart Michel Platini, calling them thieves.
The 1986 World Cup winner, Maradona, who granted Naples television station, PiuEnne, an interview spoke on the upcoming FIFA elections and the football heads, saying, “I’m outside all that because someone called Blatter closed all doors on me.”
“But I’m not a thief. Blatter did a lot of harm to football and with Platini it’s a farce. They pretend to be separated, one at FIFA and the other at UEFA, while in fact they were always side by side,” Maradona said.
“The only thing Blatter could teach Platini was how to steal,” he added.
