From the publisher:
When Diego Maradona died of a heart attack on November 25, 2020 at the age of 60 - the world not only bowed to one of its greatest football players. But before a myth. In this book, prominent authors, experts and interlocutors - such as Jorge Valdano or Rudi Völler - investigate this myth. They explain why Maradona was the best number 10 in the world, how he electrified Naples and at the same time knew how to plunge into deep abysses again and again. Pelé, they say in Argentina, was the king of the game. But Maradona his god.
