Diego Maradona Gave Us The Greatest Warm Up Of All Time Before The 1989 UEFA Cup Semi-Final

Diego Maradona Gave Us The Greatest Warm Up Of All Time Before The 1989 UEFA Cup Semi-Final

On April 19, 1989, as the tones of Austrian pop band Opus and their hit song Live Is Life rang around the Olympiastadio stadium in Berlin, the great Diego Maradona gave us one of the most iconic moments in football history; a masterpiece, some might say.

During the pre-match warm-up ahead of Napoli's UEFA Cup semi-final against Bayern Munich, a relaxed Diego performed a series of keepie-uppie skills in time with the music, juggling it with his knees, head, chest and shoulders while smiling to the transfixed crowd.

With his shoelaces undone, the Argentinian entertained the masses.

Unfazed and without a care in the world other than what was happening right before his eyes, this was a bit special. Napoli went on to secure a place in the final thanks to a 2-2 draw but it was this mesmeric display, from a man so skilled, that will forever be remembered from a special night in Germany.
