Diego Maradona feels vindicated by the FIFA corruption arrests.
The ex-Napoli hero has been blasting FIFA and President Sepp Blatter for years and was not surprised this morning to see seven high-ranking officials arrested as part of an FBI investigation.
“People said I was crazy!” he told Radio La Red in Argentina. “Today the FBI revealed the truth.“FIFA has reserves of $1.5bn and there are players who earn no more than $150. Those liars were caught by surprise,” continued Maradona.
“Today there is no football, there is no transparency. Just lie to people and put on a show to re-elect Blatter.
“Now we’ll see if he gets re-elected after everything that happened. Where was Blatter when all this was going on?
“The Americans did an impeccable job and now people have to explain what’s been happening.
“The good will remain and I will take care of the bad personally. The money they earn ought to be used to build a training camp for African children.”
Maradona is no fan of UEFA either and slammed Michel Platini too.
“We want a man of football to be in charge. They came and tried to convince me with money, but I earn my money by working, not taking people for a ride.
“Platini? He is French, so if the wind blows left, he goes left. If the wind blows right, he goes right.”
