Diego Maradona and Ricardo Fort’s fight
Buenos Aires, July 23, 2012
Ricardo Fort is angry with Diego Maradona because the star would not be in his show and did choose to TVR, a program that competes with the chocolate businessman.
“For months I have been inviting Maradona to come to my show. He promised me he was coming when he arrived from Dubai,” Fort said in his program which airs in America channel.
“I called him and he didn’t answer me. Then Claudia Villafane (Maradona’s former wife) called to tell me that he would not go anywhere because he was depressed after he was dismissed form Al Wasl,” Fort said.
“And there I learned he was going to TVR a program that is competing with me. I pulled from my hand a Rolex watch made of gold and I gave it to him. He has no codes,” the millionaire accused.
Naturally Maradona was not quiet and fired with heavy ammunition. “I go where I want. The chocolate man said that he gave me a watch, a snitch,” the former player said.
“It bothered me that he spoke of the watch” added Maradona, while showing some of his own collection that reaches 100 units.
“You got into the worst, chocolate man. Above my daughters do not pass anyone, especially a chocolate man,” said the former coach of Al Wasl. “He does not believe he’s the owner of the world … He believed is the child!”, Maradona said.
