PART football genius, part blubbering walrus, Diego Maradona, has been banned from football for two months by FIFA following his Fisherman’s Friends inspired outburst last month.
The Argentine blob was punished after his foul-mouthed ‘suck this’ rant at gathered journos following the national side’s crucial 1-0 win over Uruguay.
So what will the two-month ban actually mean? Well he’ll miss a ‘pencilled-in-but-not-quite finalised’ friendly with the Czech Republic and the draw for the World Cup. And that’s it.
Way to put your foot down FIFA!
In a statement, Fifa said they had taken into consideration the “sincere remorse” shown by the Argentina head coach, who had flown from Madrid to Zurich after Argentina’s 2-1 friendly loss to Spain on Saturday.
