Football Fans Slam English Media's Coverage Of Diego Maradona's Death

Football Fans Slam English Media's Coverage Of Diego Maradona's Death

Football fans have slammed the English media's coverage of Diego Maradona's tragic death.

Thursday's national newspaper front pages across the UK read extremely different to publications around Europe.

The English media have focused on the 1986 World Cup winner being a 'cheat' rather than the genius he was with French outlet L'Equipe hailing him as a "god".

In comparison to the Daily Star who ran with the front page: "Where was VAR when we needed it most?"

The Sun's front page reads: "England's World Cup nemesis and one of the all-time greats... In the hands of god."

Needless to say, the front pages of some UK national newspapers didn't go unnoticed by fans and figures on social media.

One Twitter user wrote: "What grates most is this attempt to reduce this genius (and deeply flawed human) who gave joy to millions to one incident which I reckon most English people got over quite a long time ago. And are we trying to say cheating doesn't happen in football? Or sport? Or life?"

A second tweeted: "I honestly don't understand how they get away with it."

A third added: "One of the most blatant examples to show that the media in this country really are f**king vermin."

The front pages of European publications looks very different to UK's coverage as they use iconic images of Maradona.

Argentina's president has said there will be three days of national mourning following the death of Maradona, who passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest at the age of 60.
