From the publisher:
Inside Diego is an intimate portrait of the greatest footballer of all time, from the person in football who knew him best. As Diego Maradona's personal trainer, Fernando Signorini spent more than a decade at the superstar's side, witnessing a dizzying array of highs and lows, from helping Diego recuperate from a broken ankle in 1983 to his dramatic exit from the 1994 World Cup after a failed drugs test. Signorini offers a unique perspective on the troubled legend, giving us the lowdown not only on Diego's evolution as an athlete, but on Diego the human being, a far cry from the character we saw on TV screens.
He brings us the inside track on Maradona's preparation for three World Cups: Mexico 86, Italia 90 and USA 94. We also get an insider view on his battles with fame, drugs and extramarital paternity, plus his time in charge of the Argentine national team. Brimming with incredible stories and anecdotes, Inside Diego is an intensely personal rollercoaster account of a flawed football genius.
Fernando Signorini was Diego Maradona's personal trainer between 1983 and 1994, and worked for the Argentina national team and several clubs in Argentina, Italy and Mexico. Luciano Wernicke is the author of more than 20 sports books, published in 30 countries and translated into 18 languages. Fernando Molina is a journalist and sports marketer who was Maradona's press officer during his time as coach of the Argentine national team.
