Maradona was an antihero, he paid for his errors, told Ciro Ferrara, a retired defender of Napoli and Juventus.
At Napoli, Ferrara was Maradona’s teammate for seven seasons.
“I am moved, these are difficult moments,” he said on Twitch, interviewed by Bobo Vieri.
“At the beginning, I didn’t want to talk, then I felt the necessity to speak about a teammate and a big friend.”
“We are all so sad for what happened, I am convinced Diego left serenely. I grew up with him, I have unforgettable memories of him.”
“He is a friend of mine and I’ve always defended him, he paid for his mistakes.”
“Somebody says Diego was a hero, I say heroes are perfect, they don’t do mistakes. Diego was an antihero. Despite his weaknesses, he became the best ever.”
“He had a crazy head, a little bit like [Antonio] Cassano, maybe they would have gotten along.”
