Maradona Net Worth

Diego Maradona Net Worth : $1 Million

Known as “El Pibe de Oro” (the Golden Boy) thanks to his diminutive stature and legendary performance at the 1986 world cup, not even the least soccer-oriented individual can claim ignorance to the name Diego Maradona. A living legend by all standards, he is responsible for many of the beautiful games greatest moments and records, some of which remain unequaled.

Diego Armando Maradona is the fifth of eight siblings born to a low-income household in Bueno Aires, Argentina on 30th October 1960. Such meagre beginnings did not stop the future all-star from pursuing his dream from the tender age of three.

By the time he was 10, Maradona had begun his professional career with the youth squad of Argentinos Juniors, Los Cebollitas, and quickly gained a reputation by leading them to a 136 match-winning streak! He then went onto the senior team as a midfielder prior to his 16th birthday and was subsequently drafted into the 1986 world cup winning national team.

Never one to shy away from controversy, Maradona has been associated with copious drug use, record-breaking transfer fees, and media outbursts. Despite this, he has managed to maintain a post professional career even coaching the 2010 world cup team. He has amassed a $1 million fortune.
