The International Football Federation (FIFA) decided to cease cooperation with Diego Maradona in connection with his behavior at the match between Argentina and Nigeria in St. Petersburg. This is reported by Diario Correo.
Maradona collaborated with FIFA as the ambassador of the organization. According to media reports, he was paid 10 thousand pounds for visiting every game of the World Cup, and also paid all expenses.
During this match at the stadium “St. Petersburg” Maradona danced with the Nigerian and waved a carpet with his image, almost fell out of the VIP-box, celebrating the first goal scored, and after the victorious ball showed the whole world two middle fingers (this episode hit in a video broadcast).
Petersburg doctors even managed to measure Maradona’s pulse, after which he fled.
