    Post famouse (or not) quotes here.
    lol, I'll start with quotes about maradona. :mrgreen:

    Zidane once said "I've seen a video of Maradona shooting the bar from outside the box and shoothing it again straight into the post when it came back, five times in a row without any problem at all. Do you know how hard it is to do that? I can only do it 2 times in a row"

    Gary Lineker: "During a friendly between world and Europe, we were all warming up in the middle of the pitch. Maradona came in and started doing some tricks. Everybody stopped and watched him. One time he took the ball and hit it as high as he could and when the ball came down he literally caught it with his left foot without bounching it. He did it 3 times in a row as if to show that it is not luck. Myself, Platini, Zico and others all had their mouths open. We all tried to do it...but ofcourse we failed. In short Maradona is the most talented player that I have seen or will ever see in my lifetime."

    Michel Platini: "People talk about how great Zidane is, but Maradona could do what Zidane does, with an Orange. That's how great Maradona was."

    Lothar Mattheus: "I was so nervous before the match in 86. Here I was given the task to mark the greatest player in the world. I almost had a nervous breakdown"

    Tostao: "Maradona is the singular most talented player ever" --> coming from a guy who played with Pelé

    I know, I know.. please don't start a discussion about Maradona. Just post quotes, ok? :D

    This is hard to traslate, but I'll try:

    "The one who doesn't feel it inside him, raise a hand"

    Cholo Simeone, when he was in Atletico Madrid, after losing a game. Obviously referring to a large dick.

    "I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered"

    Wanderly Luxemburgo telling it like it is to international coaches at a Rio forum.

    "If you have two bathrooms at home and can't decide which one to use, you'll end up shitting your trousers." Luxemburgo was explaining how to 'be focused, be cool' to an audience including Gérard Houllier, Andy Roxburgh and Carlos Alberto. "If, for instance, I have a choice between me dying and my father dying, then I'd choose him because he's old. As a manager, I want to kill all my opponents. But I want to do that in an ethical way."
