In 1986 Diego Maradona turned out for Tottenham Hotspur in a testimonial for Ossie Ardiles against Inter Milan.  Here are 5 things we learnt from the Argentina striker’s only appearance in North London.  

Chris Hughton had a baby face

The Brighton manager was Spurs full back and was part of the UEFA Cup winning team in 1984.

Glenn Hoddle gave up his shirt

The future England manager gave up his #10 shirt to Maradona but still wore the shortest pair of shorts available in North London.

Maradona and Ardiles led the team out with Ossie’s 2 sons.  Hoddle and the rest of the boys had to wait a bit in the tunnel.  Awks.

The Spurs shirt was sick

The Spurs shirt was class. Holsten sponsor and hummel print.  Vintage.  To be fair I also love that Inter shirt.

Ossie and Diego gave an awkward interview

A stoney faced Maradona gave a dour interview with Ossie translating where they spoke about the impending World Cup 86.
