    Nope. Maradonna's small. Him and his twin brother Herve Villechaize are both small.

    He is short, indeed. One of his nicknames is "Pelusa" (means "dust flake"). But that also gives him a low gravity center that allowed him fast direction changes which would leave defenders behind.

    Would be interesting to see Maradona against Crouch...

    Guga's tall, of course. Put Diego next to Yao Ming and he'll look even shorter.

    He's Gustavo Kuerten, A Brazilian tennis player who was highly ranked some time ago. He was the top clay player in the world at one time and won the French Open.

    So what if he's short... ? He was one of the greatest and surley we have to comment on his football, not on his height.

    So I ask you, what the hell is the relevance of this?

    I read a match summary of Argentina vs Uruguay from Mexico 86 and it said that Maradona was 5ft6. Has he shrunk since then?

    He's 5'7 or 5'8

    I've seen him hugging Tevez and they're about the same.
