Football fans are saying the same thing after statue unveiled in tribute to Argentina legend Diego Maradona | The Sun

FOOTBALL fans are all saying the same thing after a new statue of Diego Maradona was unveiled in Spain.

The dodgy design was revealed ahead of the COTIF final in the Spanish town of L'Alcudia.


With Argentina's Under-20s in action, the country's FA president Claudio Tapia was in town to unveil the new Maradona tribute.

Tapia beamed as he posed for photos next to the work, designed by Spanish artist Rafa Ferri.

But fans have been quick to slate the artwork online, likening it from Sylvester Stallone to Bruce Lee.

One social media user wrote: "Have respect for Diego!"
