Maradona said to be a devout Catholic and be happy for the choice of his fellow countryman Jorge Bergoglio now known as “Pope Francis I” under the command of the Catholic Church.
“I am really very happy and I am sure that my enthusiasm is shared by all Argentines”, said.
“Everyone in Argentina remember “the hand of God” in the match against England in the World Cup of 1986. Now, in my country, the “hand of God” has brought us an Argentine Pope”, added “El Pelusa”.
The former player said in that controversial time, he made him “a little with the head of Maradona” and a little with the hand of God.
