Foot­ball: Maradona on Veron clash: ‘It stays be­tween us’

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Diego Maradona doesn’t want to make a big deal about his clash with Juan Se­bas­tian Veron. The two Ar­gen­tines bumped into each other while play­ing in the “Match for Peace” at Olympic Sta­dium on Wed­nes­day night, and Maradona fell over. They ap­peared to ar­gue as they walked off the pitch at half­time, with Maradona the more an­i­mated of the two. Maradona says, “What hap­pened with Veron stays be­tween us, I’m not sup­posed to talk about a player who I al­ways ad­mired a lot.” Veron was severely crit­i­cal of Maradona when the Ar­gentina great coached him at the 2010 World Cup. Veron shook off their lat­est clash as “noth­ing.” Maradona played in the game to honor Pope Fran­cis.
