Meeting Maradona

Meeting Maradona
By Donny Mahoney Updated

Robbie Rogers plays football in the MLS with the Columbus Crew. He's training for the new season right now and has been reflecting on his summer holidays. He was hanging with his teammate Guillermo Schelotto in Argentina during the off-season and was fortunate enough to meet Diego Maradona. What ensued was pretty hilarious

“One day we went to Maradona’s assistant’s house for a barbeque, and we all played some soccer. That was so cool to meet Maradona. He was a lot different than I thought he’d be. He was kinda like….I dunno…he was kinda like a mafia dude. I seriously felt like I was hanging out with the mafia. There were all these super gnarly dudes and everyone was smoking cigars. I was like, ‘Oh my God, I need to get out of here.’ It was super cool to meet him, though. I took a picture with him and his assistant is supposed to send it to me, but I haven’t gotten it yet. Maybe one day I’ll get it. I hope so."
