Crazy Diego’s history with current Germany squad
If Germany have been stoking the flames with Argentina this week, then Diego Maradona and his men are certainly no angels. The Argentinian coach was winding up his quarter-final opponents as far back as March when he stormed out of a press conference with Germany’s Thomas Mueller, demanding to know why he had been billed alongside a ball boy.
Maradona only returned to the podium to complete the press conference when the Bayern Munich youngster had been ushered away. He half-heartedly explains that he thought the press conference was for coaches, not players, and later joked that he thought the ball boy had turned up.
