INSIDE DIEGO: HOW THE BEST FOOTBALLER IN THE WORLD BECAME THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME by Fernando Signorini, Luciano Wernicke & Fernando Molina
The inside story of football superstar, Diego Maradona – from the person in football who knew him best.
As Diego Maradona’s personal trainer, Fernando Signorini spent more than a decade at the superstar’s side, witnessing a dizzying array of highs and lows, from helping Diego recuperate from a broken ankle in 1983 to his dramatic exit from the 1994 World Cup after a failed drugs test.
Signorini offers a unique perspective on the troubled legend, giving us the lowdown not only on Diego’s evolution as an athlete, but on Diego the human being, a far cry from the character we saw on TV screens. He brings us the inside track on Maradona’s preparation for three World Cups: Mexico 86, Italia 90 and USA 94. We also get an insider view on his battles with fame, drugs and extramarital paternity, plus his time in charge of the Argentine national team.
Brimming with incredible stories and anecdotes, Inside Diego is an intensely personal rollercoaster account of a flawed football genius.
