This review is from: El Diego: The Autobiography of the World's Greatest Footballer (Hardcover)
What a great read by a true superstar. Maradona comes across as someone who despite having more talent in his right toe than most of todays international never really made the most of his god given talents.
He did win the World Cup and was probably the greatest footballer ever but he could have been so much better. He is honest and patriotic and never shies away from controversy.
Despite being English myself and a Maradona hater thanks to Mexico 86 after putting the book down I actually started to like the guy, great read for all footie fans.

I think you are wrong to say Maradona did not fulfill his talent, he did. However the final phase of his career was troubled. His exit from Napoli, the drug bans and then of course the devastating exit from the World Cup in 1994.
