WATCH | ‘El Diego’ in the greatest warm-up video of all time


Diego Maradona of Napoli in action during the match between Napoli and Genova at the San Paolo Stadium on June 4, 1989 in Naples, Italy.

Diego Maradona, who died on Wednesday at the age of 60, will forever be remembered as one of the greatest footballers of all time.

Maradona, regarded as arguably the greatest ever, gave us the greatest warm-up video of all time before the 1989 UEFA Cup semi-final against Bayern Munich at the Olympiastadio Stadium in Berlin.

To the tune of Austrian pop band Opus and their hit song Live Is Life, Maradona provided football fans with the greatest pre-match warm-up and one of the most iconic moments in football history.

Maradona can be seen juggling the ball in a series of keepie-uppies in time with the music in front of the transfixed crowd, all with his shoelaces undone.

Napoli booked a place in the competition’s final with a 2-2 draw before lifting the trophy against Stuttgart.
