DIEGO MARADONA has claimed to have been abducted by a UFO and says he lost his virginity “at 13” with an “older lady” who was “reading a newspaper”.
The football legend, 59, made the comments in an interview with Argentine sports channel TyC Sports.
When asked if he believed in UFOs, Maradona said: “Why make things up? Once, after a few too many drinks, I was missing from home for three days.
“I got home and said that UFOs had taken me. I said ‘They took me, I can’t tell you about it’.”
He was also asked at what age he had lost his virginity.
The former Napoli star said: “At 13 years old, in a basement with an older lady.
“I was on top and she was reading a newspaper.”
He added that his favourite sexual position was “on all fours”.
Maradona, who manages Gimnasia in his homeland, also revealed that he has played “several times” in his career without having slept.
He was also asked which three footballers he would invite to a party on a yacht.
He responded: “Carlos (Tevez), Leo Messi and Gabriel Heinze”.
Maradona said he spent his first pay packet “in a pizzeria” with “my old lady (mother) alone,” adding that he felt like “Bill Gates and she seemed like Queen Sofia”.
MESSI ‘CRIED IN THE SHOWER’
When asked who he would invite to a dinner party, he answered: “Fidel Castro, (Hugo) Chavez, Lula (former Brazilian President), Nestor Kirchner (former Argentine President), Alberto Fernandez (former Argentine President), Cristina (Kirchner, former Argentine President).”
In the interview he also revealed how star striker Lionel Messi “cried in the shower” after Argentina, who Maradona was managing, were smashed 4-0 by Germany in the 2010 World Cup.
And referring to netting with his infamous “hand of God” against England in the 1986 World Cup, Maradona described himself as “a regular guy who scored a goal against the English who were killing our kids in the Falklands War”.
