One of Diego Maradona’s daughters says that the shirt to be auctioned on 20 April by Sotheby’s auction house is not her father’s.

 

It’s not that one. I can’t reveal who has it, but it’s madness. It’s not that man (Steve Hodge, England’s player that day),” Dalma Maradona told the Argentine press. The shirt for sale, she said, was worn by her father during the first half of an Argentina match against England in 1986. She said Diego Maradona told her at the time: “How can I give him the shirt of my life? She said that Diego Maradona had said to her at the time: “How can I give him the shirt of my life ?“, referring to the shirt in which he scored two goals in that historic 2-1 victory, including a goal with his hand and the famous “goal of the century“, dribbling half a goal into the net.
