The Ital­ian Trea­sury claim that the former Ar­gentina le­gend owes €30 mil­lion from his seven-year spell in the coun­try in which he made over 180 ap­pear­ances for Partenopei. The 52-yearold has re­futed th­ese claims and ad­mit­ted that he hopes to re­turn to Sta­dio San Paolo hav­ing be­ing proven in­no­cent. "They haven't got ev­i­dence to come af­ter me or to per­se­cute me. I'm not a tax evader. I never have been be­cause I only played soc­cer." he said.
