On the occasion of Diego Armando Maradona's 59th birthday, social media recovered a documentary in which criticised himself and spoke freely about his now overcome drug addiction.

"Do you know what type of player I would have been if I hadn't taken cocaine? What a player we lost!, the Argentinian legend confessed to the journalist that was interviewing him.

Maradona still resents that he never reached his true potential. "I'm left with a bad taste in my mouth that I would have been so much more than I am today".

"Yes yes, I can assure you yes," he reiterated visibly moved and with sad eyes to the journalist, in a documentary film by Emil Kusturica filmed in 2008.
