The world lost a legend in 2020 when Diego Maradona died at age 60, and his tragic death inspired us to look back at some of Diego's highlights, including his appearance for Tottenham Hotspur.

The Argentinian great played for Tottenham Hotspur in a testimonial for Ossie Ardiles against Inter Milan.  Here are 5 things we learnt from his one-of appearance in North London. 

Chris Hughton had a baby face

Chris Houghton Spurs

The Nottingham Forest manager Chris Hughton 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 entered the pitch together

 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.  it was the 1986 Spurs home shirt Holsten sponsor and hummel print.  Vintage.  To be fair I also love that Inter shirt with the Misura sponsor.


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.  Neither were going to give anything away about how they were feeling.
