The recent news of Diego Maradona’s ongoing troubles should not detract from his former glory as one of the greatest footballers the world has ever seen. Since his retirement he has suffered drink and drug problems, which were particularly highlighted in his goal celebration during the 1994 USA football world cup, and his subsequent failed drug test for the banned substance Ephedrine. Towards the end of his career, Maradona suffered a number of lows, failing a drug test prior the 1994 World Cup in 1991 whilst playing for Napoli and being banned from playing football for 15 months.
