El Diego Reviews


"This is an operatically emotional book, and also an exceptionally vivid one" * Martin Amis, Guardian *
"A revealing autobiography of a footballing genius" * Sunday Times Sports Book of the Week *
"El Diego illustrates the man's simple, unadulterated love for the game, for the pure unsullied act of taking a football and making it dance to his exuberant tunes. It's a love story, without a happy ending, stopping when he walks off the pitch for the last time" * Scotsman *
"It is the autobiography of a footballer, not a celebrity who played football - Maradona's is a turbulent love story about his passion for the game" * The Times *
"Let's say it now, the real reason you want to read a book written by Diego Maradona is to see whether a genius who could skip past every assailant on the planet (except the ones with a wrap of coke) can actually hold a pen, let alone string a sentence together. Thankfully he can." * Arena *
