first_imgThe Argentinean legendary footballer says that FIFA hasn’t changed a bit under president Gianni Infantino and they treat players “like dogs.”As one of football’s historical players, Diego Armando Maradona used to captain the FIFA Legend’s programme.But former Argentina national team footballer and FIFA World Cup champion has said that the football’s governing body mistreats players.“I sent a letter to [FIFA president, Gianni] Infantino in which I resigned from (the post of) being captain of (FIFA) legends,” he told Sky Sports.“Since [former FIFA president, Sepp] Blatter and [former Argentina Football Association president, Julio] Grondona left, FIFA hasn’t changed a bit. No change,” he said.”“They put us [in a hotel room] with [former Dutch player, Marco] van Basten and another player. And they treated us as if we were little dogs that only needed to be fed and that’s it. A total lack of respect.”“That’s why I resigned. And now, I will start revealing what I know about this new FIFA,” he explained.The now Dorados de Sinaloa manager in the Mexican second division also took a jab against FIFA’s deputy general secretary Zvonimir Boban who he challenged to a boxing fight.Lautaro has a better start than Argentina’s greatest legends Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 After his impressive exhibition vs Mexico last Tuesday, Lautaro Martinez officially surpassed the start of Argentina’s greatest legends.We truly can’t stress enough incredible Lautaro…“Also, I would like to say to Boban that if he wants to look good, let’s go to a [boxing] ring. He shouldn’t have come to the hotel and got angry,” Maradona said.“The worst part is that Boban was sent by someone. And this someone is Infantino. I am not a 20-year-old kid, I am 58. It hurts me because I believed in these people. Now I don’t believe them anymore.”Under Maradona, Dorados made it to the final last year, only to lose against Atletico San Luis. Right now his team is dead last in the Mexican Ascenso MX standings with only two matches played, both lost, and zero points.Regresó Diego Armando Maradona a #LaPecera ‼Galería completa aquí ➡ https://t.co/PpnZfezqlO#ConElPezHastaElFinal pic.twitter.com/Q3tHnmLi6A— #ConElPezHastaElFinal (@Dorados) February 1, 2019last_img
