Diego Maradona claims to be abducted by an alien UFO and also lost his virginity at the age of 13, The Argentine has once again sparked the headlines.
The Argentine legend of football who has always been amid controversies for his behaviour be it on the pitch or off the pitch, moreover his several statements in past has landed him in trouble on several occasions.
This time once again, Maradona has sparked headlines after an absurd statement on his virginity and extraterrestrial creatures, as he believes that he was abducted by one. Although he does admit this experience came after a “few too many drinks”.
His latest interview with Argentine sports channel TyC Sports – per talkSPORT – is potentially his most bizarre one yet.
“Why to make things up?” he said. “Once, after a few too many drinks, I was missing from home for three days. “I got home and said that UFOs had taken me. I said ‘They took me, I can’t tell you about it’.” said Maradona.
The former Napoli star was also asked when he lost his virginity – and Maradona had a typically amusing anecdote up his sleeve. “At 13 years old, in a basement with an older lady, I was on top and she was reading a newspaper.”
This is surely one of the most bizarre statements by one of the best players in the history of football. Maradona has also revealed that he has often played football matches without sleeping the night before.
When asked which three footballers he would invite on to his yacht, he named Carlos Tevez, Lionel Messi and Gabriel Heinze. Nevertheless, the claim of meeting aliens is highly unreal by Maradona and is being laughed at on social media.
Currently, Maradona is managing Gimnasia y Esgrima in Argentina, although he has no significant achievement in his managerial career, his tenure as the Argentina coach was highly disappointing.
