Maradona furious at Icardi Peace Match appearance

Argentine football legend Diego Maradona could not hide his discomfort at the appearance of compatriot Mauro Icardi at today's Peace Match organised by the Vatican City, stating that the initiative could lose his backing if the Inter youngster continued his involvement.

Maradona, whose Scholus team lost 6-3 to Javier Zanetti's 'Pupi Foundation', had previously criticised Icardi for his conduct with Wanda Nara, the ex-wife of fellow footballer Maxi López who started a relationship with the striker soon after announcing the end of her marriage.

"Icardi should not have played this match, due to a decision we had taken. We have to talk with the organisers," Maradona fired after the final whistle.

"We have to come to an agreement with the organisers and if not, [the initiative] can go on without Maradona. because football is great across the world."

Despite his objections to Icardi, who scored a hat-trick for the Pupi team, Diego was full of praise for the pope and his commitment to changing the world.

"Francis is a human being, he embraces you, he has his feet on the ground. He thinks about the hungry children in Africa and war. In me, he has a soldier, an ally. I will fight at the Pope's side," he affirmed.
