After the death of Diego Maradona, the football world mourns one of its greatest. Argentina is sinking in tears, the sanctuary of many forever enthusiastic fans is now spinning its pirouettes in heaven. But what remains of this exceptional talent? The best way to tell his life is through anecdotes – and that’s what we want to do in this issue of the SZ Sports Podcast. Peter Burghardt, formerly the SZ correspondent in Buenos Aires, has witnessed the Argentinians’ euphoria for years and even once almost personally had a meeting with the “hand of God” in Cuba. How it came about and why it went wrong, he tells in this episode.
At his side this time is Thomas Hummel, whose memory is mainly based on a game by SSC Napoli in Munich in 1989. Anyone who thinks they have read everything about Maradona is right with “And now for sport”, because moderator Jonas Beckenkamp has a few details this week that have never been heard before.
In the wide world of sport, you sometimes need a deeper insight – which offers “And now to the sport”, the podcast of the Süddeutsche Zeitung. SZ sports editors offer assessments that go beyond the pure result report.
