Diego Maradona is widely regarded as the best player to have emerged in the world football. He single-handedly inspired Argentina to win the 1986 FIFA World Cup, scoring five goals and assisting five, including his sensational goal against England.

He also captained Argentina as they reached the final of the 1990 World Cup, but this time his side lost against Germany.

Maradona who passed away at the age of 60 revived Napoli and led them to their first league triumph in the 1986/1987 season and in 1989/1990 they won the Serie A title again. With the help of the Argentine magician Napoli won the UEFA Cup in 1989.

He is the only player to have twice emerged as the most expensive player in the world.
