“I was 24 when I started taking bad substance. I was at Barcelona. It’s the biggest mistake I’ve ever made.
“My daughter asked me to live for her when I was in a coma. I thank God because he woke me up and listened to my daughter.
“Women, money the biggest problem? The biggest problem is substance and it kills. I have the great fortune of being here talking to you. If I continued to take them, I’d have died no doubt. “For 13 years, I haven’t taken anything and I feel great.” Maradona explained.
Maradona became coach of Argentina in November 2008 and he was in charge of the team at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa before leaving at the end of the tournament. He also coached Dubai-based club Al Wasl in the UAE Pro-League for the 2011–12 season.
