The Other ‘Hand of god’ by Maradona

Well, you can never get enough of Maradona news, and his hands that are full of surprises.

Diego Maradona’s personal life and relation with Rocio Oliva has been recently under the spotlight for a multitude of reasons.

From alleged attempts of beating her, to singing in public for her, and now ‘fingering her’.

That's 'right hand' for you

That’s ‘right hand’ for you

There is no shame in seeing someone enjoying his sex life with his teammate, but the shame is for those who are making a fuss about every kiss or ‘sentimental’ or intimate moment Diego Maradona is spending, even in private, with Rocio Oliva.

When did swimming become a crime?

In other unimportant news, Maradona must pay the legal expenses of Shanghai Shenhua team coach Sergio Batista for alleging he took bribes from national players, an Argentine court has ruled. The ruling by a criminal court in the Argentinean capital, Buenos Aires, called for Maradona to pay Batista’s legal team 39,000 pesos (about 4,600 dollars).

Doesn't she wish he used the 'hand of god' itself?

Because Only Maradona Can Pull a Maradona

Some days ago, the world went crazy after seeing Maradona’s alleged attempt to hit his girlfriend (wife, ex-fiance, love, etc.) Rocio Oliva.

The relation between Diego and what’s her face has just taken another U-turn when they attended a product launch in Dubai. She was sitting next to him (that’s her in the photo, right?), when Maradona decided to start singing for her. [VIDEO HERE]

Case closed!


I can love you and hit you and kiss you and sing for you and I am still the same Maradona

For the records, the incident answers most of the questions I had here, and for the records too, Maradona and Rocio Oliva have broken up and reunited several times during the course of their relationship, and the couple were even engaged for a short time before breaking it off.

Happy Birthday Diego Armando Maradona… Eternal Legend…


A Drunken Maradona Is Still A Maradona

A video went viral online showing Diego Maradona, sort of drunk, at home, attempting an attack on his fiance Rocio Oliva.

Regardless of the incident and why it happened and how it ended, here are the main talking points:

  1. Who shot the video? And why?
  2. Who leaked the video? And why?
  3. Will it end the relation between the couple?
  4. Will it affect Maradona’s next professional step? (like, really?)
  5. Will Maradona chase the responsible parties?

Whatever Maradona does, he will always be a Maradona. He has done worse and better stuff, and he will never change.

I am only curious to know if he will be back any time soon to the United Arab Emirates and specifically Dubai, to assume any role, or continue his current one as Dubai’s Sports Ambassador, and whether he will take part in shooting Season 2 of The Victorious.

Maradona Singing: Brasil, Decime Que Se Siete!

Adding salt to the wound, the legendary Maradona joined the crowds. Maradona was seen from inside the World Cup’s International Broadcast Center in Rio de Janeiro celebrating Brazil’s loss with the staff of an Argentine television network. He was singing the now famous “Brasil, Decime Que Se Siente” but changed the word ‘siente’ with ‘siete’ to indicate number 7 and point out the 1-7 loss of Brazil.

Argentina Song For the World Cup: Brasil Decime Que Se Siente

If you have been following the World Cup in Brasil 2014, you surely couldn’t miss the one song that is repeated and heard everywhere by everyone.

The song is titled: Brasil Decime Que Se Siente.


Brasil Decime Que Se Siente

It is set to the tune of “Bad Moon Rising” by Creedence Clearwater Revival — and predicts not just triumph for Argentina, but deep humiliation for Brazil. And the players themselves have joined the choir [Check this video from the locker room of Argentina after the win over Belgium >>> HERE].

The same song and tune have been around for some years, but the lyrics are altered to fit the occasion of the World Cup – Brazil 2014. The words focus on Argentina’s celebration on Brazilian ground, with reference to four main things: 1- Brazilian humiliation at home by Argentinians 2- The goal that Claudio Cannigia scored in the World Cup – Italy 1990, against Brazil [check HERE] 3- Messi winning the World Cup in Brazil 4- Maradona is greater than Pele.

The lyrics of the song in English are sort of not structured (you can blame Google Translate for that), but here they are in a way or another:


Brazil, tell me how it feels

Having your Daddy here at home

I swear after all these years

We are never going to forget

That Diego slipped it by 

To Cani who banged it home

You have been crying since Italy

Messi with no doubt

Will bring the Cup to us

Maradona is greater than Pele!

The Spanish words for the song are almost the following [You can download a clean version HERE]:


Brasil, decime qué se siente
tener en casa a tu papá…
Te juro que aunque pasen los años
nunca nos vamos a olvidar…
Que el Diego te gambeteó
que Cani te vacunó
que estás llorando desde Italia hasta hoy

A Messi lo vas a ver
la Copa nos va a traer
Maradona es más grande que Pelé…


Enjoy the song… Enjoy the atmosphere… Enjoy the videos below from everywhere…





Diego Maradona Sends the Finger to Julio Grondona After Argentina vs Iran Match

Julio Grondona – the Argentina Football Association President – claimed, as many did, that Diego Maradona is bad luck to the Argentina National Team in Brasil 2014 World Cup.

The claim was based on the fact that Argentina was held to a scoreless draw against Iran while Maradona was watching the match from the stadium with his daughter. The moment Maradona left the stadium, Lionel Messi decided to show up and score the winning goal.

Maradona had a simple reply on live TV as per the photo below. [You can read more details about the incident HERE]

Diego Maradona and His Daughter Dalma in a Song and a Music Video by APOLO

Gritándole al Viento is the name of the new song by APOLO featuring Diego Maradona and his daughter Dalma.

The Argentinean band APOLO collaborated with Maradona and shot the music video in April 2014. The shooting took place in Dubai – UAE, and Buenos Aires – Argentina. The song and the video were released just in time ahead of the World Cup in Brazil 2014.

The band was formed in January 2014 and it just released its new song that talks about hopes, dreams and love and is extremely passionate about the subject of soccer. The title of the song (as Google Translate suggests) means ‘Screams to the Winds’ and it highlights how people unite under a flag to reach glory while showing the world the true passion.
