Argentine football legend, Diego Maradona has been sacked from his FIFA ambassadorial for exhibiting undignified behaviour during the match against Nigeria.

The Argentine legend had celebrated Argentina’s second goal by flashing the middle finger at fans who were trolling him at the 1-1 tie.

The world football governing body considered his behaviour highly embarrassing and therefore terminated the relationship. There were also allegations of an alleged racist gesture towards South Korean fans in which he pulled his eyes to the sides.

Responding to this allegation, Maradona however, said he was speaking to an ‘Asian boy’ he saw in an Argentina jersey.
