The Napoli legend, passed away in 2020 after he suffered cardiac arrest at his home in Buenos Aires.

Diego had a fantastic career, staring for both club and country.

The former Argentine coach won two Serie A titles, the Coppa Italia trophy, Italian Super Cup and UEFA Cup with Napoli, along with winning the Copa del Rey and Spanish Super Cup with Barcelona.

He also led the blue and white to glory at the 1986 FIFA World Cup and emerging to his silverware on the international stage by winning the World Cup in 1986.

FourFourTwo compiled the rankings and placed Maradona top of the pile, highlighting the iconic former footballer’s exploits at the 1986 World Cup.

“Never again has one man dragged a team to such an important triumph through individual brilliance — and it may never happen again.”
