Seriously, did you expect anything less from Diego Maradona? This is a man who ran over a journalist’s leg with his car and then blamed it on said journalist. So Maradona promising to run naked through the streets of Buenos Aires if Argentina is victorious in the World Cup shouldn’t be all that surprising. But just in case you still think he isn’t the kind of man that would do such a thing, I guess you need to hear it from the horse’s mouth.
Diego Maradona has promised to run naked through the center of Buenos Aires if Argentina wins the World Cup.
The Argentina coach made the promise during a radio show. The unpredictable Maradona was speaking a day after Argentina defeated Canada 5-0 Monday in its final warm-up match before the World Cup.
“If we win the World Cup, I’ll get naked and run around the Obelisk,” he said, referring to the tall monument that marks the center of the city and serves as its most famous landmark.
Maradona’s response came after a reporter asked him in the interview what he would do if his team returned to Argentina with its third World Cup title.
You’ve been warned, citizens of Buenos Aires.
