Argentinian great Diego Maradona has been slapped with a fine by Mexican football’s governing body, which found him in violation of its ethics code, after he backed Venezuela’s leader Nicolas Maduro and scolded Washington. Maradona, who has been coaching Mexico’s second division team Dorados de Sinaloa, held back neither his praise for the Venezuelan president nor his scorn for the US government, after his side emerged victorious from a close encounter with Tampico Madero late last month. Flushed with success from Los Doritos’ 3-2 triumph, the flamboyant Argentinian went on a political rant at the post-match press conference. He dedicated the victory to “Nicolas Maduro and all Venezuelans, who are suffering.” Next, Maradona took a swipe at Washington. “The sheriffs of the world, who are those Yankees?

This buffoon will definitely lose thousands of fans after that.
