Football legend, Diego Maradona arrested over $9million payout

A new report confirms that Argentina football legend, Diego Maradona was arrested at the airport after his ex-girlfriend dragged him to court over a £5 million payout.

Reports have it that Diego Maradona upon flying into Argentina from Mexico was immediately arrested and detained at the airport.

The former footballer was eventually released without charge following several hours of interrogation, and negotiation spearheaded by Argentinian consul Agostin Molin.

Alejandro Mancuso, an ex-footballer who was at the airport with Diego said;

“We arrived with Diego very quiet and went to the duty-free shop. When they announced boarding, we approached and they closed the plane door in our faces. The anger was logical and justified,” he said.
