London, March 28 (ANI): Legendary footballer Diego Maradona has launched a scathing attack on Pele, saying that the latter lost his virginity to a man.
His gay jibe was a reaction to the Brazilian football star’s statement that Maradona was “a bad example” to youngsters for having taken drugs.
“What do you want me to say? He made his debut with a bloke,” the Mirror quoted Maradona as saying, when asked about Pele’s jibe.
Meanwhile, the Argentina football team coach has offered to help fallen England football hero Paul Gascoigne kick the booze habit.
According to the Daily Star, Maradona has invited Gazza to his home to ensure that he stays sober.
Maradona, 48, who has beaten cocaine addiction, reckons he is the perfect influence to keep the England legend on the wagon. (ANI)
