Fernando Signorini, Diego Armando Maradona’s former fitness trainer, recounted some episodes from the Argentinean star’s darkest period and his addiction to cocaine.
Diego Armando Maradona is in the news again because of his delicate state of health. The Legendary player has always been concerning in this respect since he was still a professional footballer.
During his time as a player, the Argentinian star passed through several dark moments in which, unfortunately, cocaine was the big protagonist. Addiction had a hold on Diego for many years.
His former fitness trainer, Fernando Signorini, revealed in an interview with ‘Escuela Deportes’ the extent to which this drug was part of Maradona’s daily life.
“I saw him doing cocaine, I grabbed him by the ankle and said ‘what are you doing? He wanted to invite me to do some too, but I said ‘what for? Then Diego answered me ‘well, you see, because that makes you want to talk and then you can talk about anything’, he said.
“He asked me why I didn’t want to. I told him that when I am happy I want to know why and when I am sad I also want to know why. Besides, to take that thing you need a lot of money, do you think I’m Maradona? I’m Maradona’s physical trainer”, he said.
