2 Diego Maradona Documentaries Every Fan Must Watch

One of the greatest footballers to have ever graced the game, Diego Maradona, passed away earlier this week. The Argentinian, who celebrated his 60th birthday last month, succumbed to heart failure.

Maradona’s tryst with professional football in 1976 when he was just short of 16 years old. He went on to have a glorious career spanning 21 years, before finally hanging up his boots in 1997. In his prime Maradona was a cult figure not just in Argentina, but for football fans across the globe.

While we mourn his death, here are two documentaries with which we can relive and celebrate the man’s genius.

Constructed from over 500 hours of never-seen-before footage, this is a British documentary film directed by filmmaker Asif Kapadia. The film documents and centers around the time Maradona transferred from FC Barcelona to S.S.C. Napoli in 1984, and eventually went on to win the Serie A and the 1988–89 UEFA Cup with the Italian club.
Director: Asif Kapadia
