Watch: Maradona And Veron Involved In Strange Fight At Pope Francis Charity Match

Watch: Maradona And Veron Involved In Strange Fight At Pope Francis Charity Match

Yes, that has to be one of the more bizarre headline's we've published.

But it is exactly what happened at the end of the first half of Pope Francis' 'Game For Peace' charity match which took place in Rome on Wednesday night.

The lineups for both teams were packed with legends and stars such as Ronaldinho, Francesco Totti, Antonio Di Natale, Cafu, and many more, even Stoke City's Bojan, but at the end of the first half a funny moment between Maradona and Juan Sebastian Veron turned sour, and the two exchanged words while leaving the pitch.

After Maradona dived over Veron's foot, it seemed the two had a laugh, but something must have been said soon after as Veron was not happy leaving the pitch.

Very odd.

Maradona claimed two assists in the first half, although Totti did most of the work for the second, and what a lovely chip that was by Bojan.

But who get's into a fight at a Pope Francis charity match?
