Maradona attacks Pele's FIFA award

Diego Maradona has reopened his long feud with great rival Pele by dismissing the Brazilian's FIFA award as not “worth s---”.

And the 52-year-old continued his verbal attack by firing barbs at FIFA, which he claims is run by people too “old to drive a car.”

Maradona and Pele were acclaimed as the two greatest players of the past century in 2000 when Maradona topped an Internet-based Player of the Century poll while Pele was recognised by FIFA’s “Football Family” award.

But 13 years on, Maradona still believes his title guarantees his sole status as the game’s greatest player of the past century.

"In 2000 I won the Player of the Century award thanks to the people. Pele was second," he told reporters. "He also came second behind [Ayrton] Senna as Brazil's greatest sportsman.

"The award that FIFA gave Pele isn't worth s---."

And FIFA itself was caught in the World Cup winner’s crosshairs as he condemned football’s governing body for lacking young blood in its ranks.

He added: "The FIFA directors are all over 95 years old!

"The people there are so old that they cannot even drive a car, so how do they lead the world of football?"
