Football legend, Diego Armando Maradona has died from a heart attack less than a month after turning 60.

He made the move to Europe to play for Barcelona in 1982 and also played for Napoli, where he had his best years, as well as Sevilla before returning home. He played five matches for Newell’s from 1993-94 before ending his career with Boca Juniors (1995-97).

Maradona became a manager after his playing career and coached the Argentina national team and had been coaching Gimnasia de La Plata until his death.

Regarded as one of the greatest players of all time.
