My name is Diego Armando Maradona, I am a retired professional soccer player. I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1960. I had played in 4 World Cups, Spain 1982, Mexico 1986, Germany 1990, USA 1994. I have played in Argentina and Italy. The best moments in my life was when I won the World Cup in Mexico 1986 the final against Germany at Estadio Azteca, however we won 3:2.
If I could change a few event in my life, it would be that, never use that drugs that my friend recommend me to have more energy at the game. I really trust him, but that make me higher and sometimes fell sick, but at the games I felt with a lot of energy. Then was plain 1994 World Cup, the representatives of the tournaments make a physical exam, because they get notify that I was using drugs, they find out that I was using drugs, they immediately kick me out of the tournament. I also get suspended by the International Federation of Soccer for 1 year. In that time, I get fat and I lost my athletic condition. If I could change that to never use drugs, I preferred to not play all the game when I get tired. But now I could not change the past.
Other thing I could change is to change back the past I will like to saw grow my son Diego, who is now in Italy with his mother Laura. I never accept Diego to be my son. But now at this point of my life I"m more regretful than ever in my life. I just want to return the time, to saw grow my son, who is now 16 years old. I am sure he always need apologize from a father, some one who always be with him. I think is not fear to no give him an opportunity to be with his father. Now, he is a teenager, he does not really care about me, but he is proud of me but only the celebrity, "Pelusa" not the human, his father.
This are some events in my life that I could change. They are not a lot, but are things that will make me a better person, because I think my life was successful, but not that I want, I like to give example to future generation to not use drugs to be better physically, the abilities get with practice not with drugs.
