Diego Maradona Explains His Wild World Cup Behavior: "My Neck Hurt A Lot"

Gif: Fox

Argentina soccer legend and stubby crazy person Diego Maradona was acting pretty nuts during yesterday’s World Cup game between Argentina and Nigeria. His rolling eyes and sloppy teetering, combined with the fact that he had to be carried away from his seat and visited by doctors after the game, made it reasonable to assume that Maradona was under the influence of something, or perhaps multiple things. But Maradona has since taken to Instagram to clear things up:


The portion in English reads:

I want to tell everyone that I am fine, that I am not, neither was I interned. In the halftime of the game against Nigeria, my neck hurt a lot and I suffered a decompensation. I was checked by a doctor and he recommended me to go home before the second half, but I wanted to stay because we were risking it all. How could I leave? I send a kiss to everyone, thanks for the support!


Whatever you say, man.
