"The TV off? I mean, if Diego Maradona, you can watch TV if you want. Fine. At least you can turn the sound off though. So when he went to the Lou, I turned the sound off. And he's still watching vodka while I'm interviewing and I can see it reflected in the screen behind. I'm talking to him and he's chatting away and I'm thinking we're getting somewhere, this is good. But the problem is he keeps talking off Mike because he keeps talking to the translator there and I think this is really bad. I need him to talk to Mike. This could be the only interview I get with Diego Maradona. I think there's only one answer for it. If I sit on the floor next to the microphone, he'll talk to the mic. So I sat on the floor in front of him while he's watching TV over me. And then I realized I'm looking at the legs and the feet of Diego Maradona. I'm at his feet, literally looking up at him. And I'm going, wow, look at his legs. I'm just thinking his thighs are amazing. And I look down his fungus. That's Diego Maradona's left foot. And I had this urge that I've never had before. I've met a lot of famous people I've met actors. I've met rockstars. I've never had the urge to touch someone. And the one thing you know about Maradona is he hates me. I could not help myself. My next question, which had no link to the answer it just gave us, so was this the anchor there. They broke and I grabbed his left foot and I touched him and then he got kind of angry, pushes me away. I fall back onto the microphone. It's all a bit embarrassing. But I couldn't help myself. I was at the feet of Diego Maradona. I had to touch him. One thing feel like does it feel like da Vinci sculpted it? Haven't washed. Michelangelo. But what did you learn from a bloke who mythologizes, how did you cut through? Because some of the stories you get to tell the terrain you move him through is so human, so poetic, so searing. I think the big thing is I spend a long time making these movies. So sometimes I would go to him and I'd have the tough questions to ask. And I'd ask something and you just read straight away that I'm not going there. Don't talk about her. I never want to hear her name again. You're like, all right. Today will not be the day where I'm going to deal with those difficult ones. I thought, okay, let's talk about your mom. Let's talk about growing up. So he was quite happy to talk about the poverty that he came from and the favela of via Frito where he came from. So okay, fine, we'll start there. And a lot of it is talking to people for a long time and the last ten minutes I'm going to get to the tricky questions. So that's really what I tried to do. A lot of it is just building up trust, building up a relationship, and right at the ending, you try and get something again because if it goes badly, it's going to keep me out. So Maradona, every English schoolboys nemesis. Thanks for that 1986 World Cup. You've rightly said in the world he's either loved or loathed. Did meeting him did listening to him, change your own personal sense of them. I think looking at the footage, seeing him young, seeing him in his prime is what for me changed my opinion. But meeting him, he's got charisma. He's got something when he smiles and he's in a good mood. You're in a good place. When he's in a bad mood, you don't want to be around him. Is that at the end of most interviews, the reason the interview would end is because he's going to go out and play 5 a side. Diego still plays football every day. I think that's the point in the end he loves to play football. That's what he loves. And at the end of the film, probably the most contemporary shot is an image of him now playing 5 a side football. There's a joy that emanates from that scene that shows you that still, after everything he's gone through, there's a thrill, just like he had as a boy back in Argentina. That's the place where he still feels the happiest. Football was his escape. I say ultimately, there is the love there's the heat. He's a challenging individual, having watched the film. I believe it's impossible to watch it without feeling an empathy for Diego Maradona. I hope so. I think that's really the intention. I think the idea is to show you who he was. You know, he has this drama around him. He has chaos he's done a lot of bad things. I don't want to justify the things that he's done in his life. But I do think somewhere deep down, there's a really nice guy. Everyone I met if that's who he used to be, and the film's trying to just show people who we used to be and then how we became the person he is now. You're about to show the film in Argentina and in Italy. How do you expect it will be received in both places and it's going to be really emotional, Napoli and from bona sarris. This is the guy who made them great and really, they haven't achieved those heights ever again since. I'm a bit afraid as well, you know, it's going to be interesting showing it to people, but generally people are going to remember why he is their God in a hero. Most Argentinians, but they've seen the film they cry a lot. This is their guys from their childhood who more than anyone made them proud he beat the Europeans. He beat the English and he didn't a nasty way, but he did do it just after a war between them whenever humiliated. That's the backstory for them. What's a life lesson that you talk from the experience of making this film? The theme that runs through Senna Amy and Maradona in a way they're all child stars. They're all kids that were brilliant. They got taken away and really I think the lesson is to have support system around you to have people around you from where you started out before you were famous who stick with you or you stick with them so they can just say, you know what you're going over to the edge and they can pull you back and I think that's the problem with a lot of the characters the minute they get famous they cut off the ties with the people they grew up with. And I think when with Maradona and with a lot of footballers the sportspeople, they get taken away from home, they get dumped on the other side of the world, they're given everything, but one of the things they need is somebody to protect him and look after them. Because when humans become gods, there's only one thing.

"And I was like, that's not what I'm asking you. I'm asking about your son. And so he didn't like it as one point when he got really angry at me. You know, you got real nerve. The translation comes in and he goes, but for that, I have to say I respect you. Because most people would not have the nerve to say this stuff to my face. Dropping Scorsese lines on you, big time. This film's a Scorsese film. It is played by a man in tighter polyester pens wearing cleats very much. This is a street guy. He happened to play soccer, but actually, when a soccer's gone, he's going to be a street guy again. Raging has shown the film to Scorsese and he loved it. And he's like, it's a couple of couple of the guy from naval Scorsese Sicilian, but he got it. He really loved it. How did that feel? That felt great. This is his kind of universe. That's what it is. Scorsese didn't know anything about soccer doesn't know anything about Diego Maradona, but he understood those characters and their street guys very well. Oh, Pacino's Maradona. It's gonna be amazing in this video. We were talking about an Irish man and he was talking about De Niro and talking about Pacino and in the middle of it dropping in Maradona like they were similar people. Talking about Scorsese. There's a Scorsese shot in all of your film Senna. There's a shot on the starting grid before Senna's doom race. When he looks haunted, lost alone. I mean, Amy Winehouse, the last third of the movie is essentially that shot over and over again. It's so solitary and then the Christmas party shop, Napoli Christmas party, post 1990 World Cup. He wants to leave Naples. He's addicted to cocaine. The walls are closing in on them. The camera cuts in on Diego. If you are a cinematographer and you intentionally try to shoot this shot, you could not have shot it more beautifully. It just zooms in and then holds on this face, a man who is dead inside. No one's ever seen this footage before. We found it with a Napoli ultra fan, shot VHS and you can just see him kind of contemplating everything that's happened, everything about to happen. How did I ruin it all? And it's not work. No one says anything. He doesn't say anything. The loneliness comes out of it. And I think the key thing about this film is to study his face in his eyes and you see what's going on. So you see chaos around him. You see lots of people and you look at his face and every moment you just see fear and vulnerability. One of the last lines from Maradona is he finally flees Naples after 7 years of excess sprawling world lord extremes. He says, when they arrived in Naples, I was welcomed by 85,000 people and when I left I was alone. And I didn't create any fuss. I just left. You went full on True Detective to make this film. You chased down rumors long battered around long denied that there was a Maradona archive out there somewhere. The story goes, Diego Maradona when he was really young had an agent called sister spieler and in 1981 Jorge has this idea that Diego Maradona is going to be a star. He's a kid still, right? He's going to break America and a way to do it to make a feature film about him. To be high as two Argentinian cameramen, who followed Diego when he's still a kid playing in Argentina, two Barcelona, they film all of the Barcelona period. Then he goes to Napoli, they film all of Napoli, somewhere during the period in Napoli, Diego fires his agent. The cameraman probably never got paid. So they run off with a tapes. I mean, the sheer mass of it, the range. How would you feel emotionally? Are you like Indiana Jones? I in the lost ark for the first time. It was a really strange feeling because you're looking at this material and you realize that no one's seen this stuff for decades. Diego has never seen his family have never seen it. He's so iconic. He's so famous. Everyone thinks they've seen everything about him and then you discover this cache of material. But it's disintegrating. You see, I was looking at these tapes and they were sticking together and I'm thinking this is crazy. This is history. Greatest footballer in the world. There's this material that no one's seen and the tapes have stuck together. They're chewing up when we're putting a machine. So I'm talking to people saying, even if you don't do a deal with me, can I just digitize them and save them for future generations? Because it's bigger than the movie. It's crazy if we lose our history, if we lose these moments, how will we know what we've ever done? So part of it was my job is just to save this material for future. Luckily, I also know that if I spend enough time talking to them, they may do a deal with me, but we're dealing with Neapolitan. We're dealing with Argentinians worthing for Argentina to neapolitans is to do a deal with English people. None of this is going to be easy. No one does any work over the phone. No one does anything by email. You could have go there. You could have a really strong coffee. You've got to become a close personal friend before they do business with you. So yes sometimes. That was the pre-production, the push production was an 18 month edit. Must have been like putting together a million piece jigsaw to tell this story so beautifully, so emotionally, with no narrator, just heavy reliance on the visuals. What was that process like? Get all of the material. And a lot of time, I'm just studying his face. I'm just looking at his eyes because when you get the tapes, they don't have a date on them. So you're looking, well, what year of Diego is this? So you're looking at a logos who's a sponsorship you look at his eyes, you look at his chin, you look at his body shape, all of that is detective work in journalism in a way, but then you're trying to tell a story. So you have to talk to people in interview him over 80 people play interviewed in boniface in France in Spain and in Italy and an interview can suddenly change everything. A key interview with Diego Maradona's trainer Fernando cine. So he was the person who really nailed this idea. Well, you know what? There's a kind of internal battle as Diego and his Maradona. There's a sweet guy, very vulnerable, really nice. He loved him. Then his Maradona, that's the guy he invented. That's the person he talks about in the third person when he's doing press to protect himself. And essentially, his life is his battle between Diego and Maradona, that's at the heart of our movie really. For this movie, you actually got to meet Maradona in Dubai over the course of a series of sit downs for 9 hours of interviews. Did you meet Diego? Or did you meet Maradona? The man or the man that's a really good question. I would say there's a point during the interviews when I'm thinking I'm talking to this guy, it's his life story. I'm trying to tell it, but I'm making a film about someone else. And I'm not sure if that person is around anymore. So on a spectrum, I was making a film about Diego who arrived in Naples, but I'm meeting someone Maradona quite late on in life. And I'm thinking I'm not sure he's the most reliable witness. Even though it's his story, I'm not sure whether or not he remembers or he wants to remember because he never looks back. He's never made a mistake in his life, Maradona, whereas Diego is callable and is able to talk about things he's done. You're sitting there with a legend. An icon, the man who slayed the English single handedly. And you had to ask him about his monumental cocaine addiction. X wives illegitimate sons, how do you ask icons the most painful thing to their own faces? Part of the way that I work if I don't bring a crew and camera. I go there and I do auto interviews. So I try to make my own triage as small as possible so that he doesn't put on a front. He will perform for a camera. And I wanted to try and dig down and get something else out of him. So I took a little zoom sound recording thing. All on my own. Put the recording device on a table, he was watching Boca juniors on TV behind me.

"You're in Academy Award winning documentary filmmaker. But how do you self describe what drives you to do what you do? Because judging from your body of work, like sophocles, Shakespeare, Arthur Miller, you seem to love tragedy. I like drama. I think it comes back to the characters having really interesting charismatic characters. I'm drawn to characters that are slightly outside of the system. They're not the establishment. They're not the good guys. They don't always win. I suppose my mission has been to humanize its characters and to show you why they became great. I know a fantastic. Your favorite kind of tragedy is never favorite tragedy. You do. I don't know what it is. It's you're my favorite tragedy. You are tragic theme. You love tragic thing. I'm interested in success and what comes with it. Human dog, that's accompanied by bright light. Your body of work, center, story of a live fast, die young, dignified, heroic Formula One meter racer who perished in a high-speed crash. Amy, the life and death of a 27 year old virtue, so tragic masterpiece. So as a man who loves Lori, sprinkle with a little bit of darkness, you've got so many choices for your next movie, you've got Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson. Lance Armstrong making a late charge. What made you decide? Diego Maradona. I'm a football fan. I've grown up watching football playing football, I love football, and of my era of watching football, he was the best player in the world. What happened was I got lucky the opportunity came to me. Someone approached me and said, look, I think there's this material which these cameramen shot off the eger Maradona that nobody's seen before. Would you like to do it? And I thought about it, and I said, no. Because this is just after Santa, and I thought I'm just done a Latin American hero from Brazil. I'm not ready to do the Argentinian one. So I actually passed on it, and a project goes away. I go for make Amy and I do a few other things, and then the producer came back again. And said, look, this is real. We could do it. And then I thought, okay, I'm ready to do it. In truth, there's few modern characters that could make a documentary filmmaker salivate more than Diego or mando Maradona. It's life arc. In American terms, I was trying to think who he's like, essentially Tony Montana in Scarface. Many say that he's the greatest footballer that ever lived. Can you describe him for someone who never had the human wonder of watching him play? In one way, he is the bridge between people like Pelé and Messi and Ronaldo. He is the guy who crosses over from the black and white generation to the megastars that we have now with a billion followers on Instagram. He's the guy that somehow came over from Latin America to Europe because Pelé never did. And he played in Italy, which was at the time in the 80s, the toughest league in the world. We squat. It was impudent, it was urchin, pop prints, 5 foot 5, hoof you don't have to be a colossus to be a world class football player, that low center of gravity. Reminds me a bit of watching Barry Sanders run, almost impossible to knock off the ball and one of the greatest dribblers. People try and break his legs. It's a time of football when it did try and break your ankles. That's what gave him the energy to play was to have a fight anger, Bronco, as they say in Argentina. He needs anger to play. So if he has someone that doesn't like him, or he's picking on him, then he'll play better. So he's a Street Fighter who happened to play football. All of his teammates loved him. It's not all about himself. He's like a political leader at the moment. He brings everyone together. He brought a community and a town that he played for together. Not just the team he brought together, he could bring entire nations and he made them believe. The 1986 World Cup, he single handedly willed a very mediocre team apart from him to glory, quarterfinal, massive game in the shadow of 1980 twos Falkland war, Argentina play England. If you're gonna sum up Diego Maradona, this is the game that makes him someone that everyone loves and hates. Two goals, three minutes apart, one goal with his hand, he's a cheat, leaping over a 6 foot one goalkeeper punching the ball into the net, the hand of God, yes, scored as he said, a little with the head of Maradona, a little with the hand of God. Three minutes later, he scores a best goal ever. We were still reeling from being robbed. And then he scored a goal that even God couldn't score. A spectacular 60 yard dash, dribbling past 5 English players, the last two of whom have all admitted they tried to take the man rather than the ball out. It couldn't. I mean, I loved the Argentinian commentator in your movie. Cosmic kite, what planet are you from to leaving your wake so many English men so that the whole country is a clenched fist shouting for Argentina? The reason why he is loved in Argentina is because of those two goals, they sum up his personality and his character, the genius and the cheat. The angel and the devil, but also the fact that this happened four years after a war between England and Argentina is why they love him and no matter what Messi does in his life will never be England in the World Cup doing those two goals just after a war. That's why he will never touch Maradona. In the eyes of Argentinians. That would be the best football chant you'll never score those two goals against England. And this is the whole thing about Argentinians and kind of Latin American football. If you're playing against your rival, you can beat them by being better than him, but if you can beat them by cheating, it hurts more. Why are we still talking about it? Why are we still alive to tell emotions that we don't otherwise feel because we're numb and dead inside and Maradona made us feel them? And hate worship and the test. He had the power to transcend, make people come together, feel things, gave us our greatest collective memories of our lifetimes, assert ourselves, feel empowered. I mean, to me, that's what made him the greatest. There you go. You said it. I could not say it better than you just did. To the film, the brilliant film. We first meet him as a shy reserved mop top team prodigy from the slums in Argentina, son of a manual worker, first played football as a way to drag his family out of abject poverty. I mean, the simplicity of the stories, 8 of them, they live in a shack, they have no running water and electricity. They get a dorky. They get an apartment because he played football. When he's 15 from the age of 15, he makes more money than his dad and his mom. So now he's basically the breadwinner and the pressure on him is to essentially feed the family. The hopes of the family became the hopes of the city, then the hopes of his nation, keeps on his shoulders. There's a great early scene where he tells a reporter, he's interested in glory rather than money and then the reporter compliments him on his new fur coat. I mean, there is humor in it as well, you know, there are moments that are quite funny. He's quite funny character. He loves to dance. He likes his music. He moves to Barcelona. It didn't go well. He had lumped kicked out of him, broken bones in his Woods. It was a real disaster. He was never really able to prove himself. He had a few great games, amazing goal against Real Madrid, but then he gets his ankle broken by Geico chair. The butcher of Bilbao is out for lunch. Horrific injury comes back, gets hepatitis. Is out of game again. He starts partying in Barcelona. That's part of the issue. He won't do as he's told. So they need him, he needs them,

It's truly remarkable. It's a singular piece of work filled with hours spent with Maradona in interview. Go and watch it now on HBO Max, also remarkable. The insight Asif is able to provide on Maradona's relationship with the city of Naples, and the way Diego actually transformed it with his presence, brief how the world sees it and the way it sees itself.

Maradona's medical team on trial in former great's death
"Argentine court says 8 healthcare professionals will stand trial in the death of soccer great Diego Maradona, three judges of an appeals court confirmed the charges of homicide by negligence brought by prosecutors against members of Maradona's medical team. A medical board's report previously given to prosecutors claims Maradona was in agony for more than 12 hours, did not receive adequate treatment and could still be alive if he had been properly hospitalized. The date of the trial hasn't been set, but it's unlikely to begin before next year. Maradona, who famously won the World Cup with Argentina in 1986, died of a heart attack aged 60 in late 2020, following brain surgery two weeks earlier.

"Barr is off for this week, a much deserved break. The FIFA World Cup is coming to a close with the final set between Argentina and France and despite being eliminated earlier on Team USA, the U.S. men's team did better than they have in recent memory. Yes, the sportsman growing here in the U.S. and as a matter of fact, the head of the World Cup we spoke with the gentleman who's played in four different World Cup tournaments for the U.S. to Marcus Beasley. DeMarcus told us that the future is bright for soccer in the United States. It's all about player development. Now you got guys like Weston McKinney, Georgia from the NYSE city academy. Tyler Adams, are you 23? He's our captain for this World Cup. And he started in New York ripa was academy. So you're starting to see that investment payoff. And I think that's great to see that we have such young talent coming to someone that can come in from MLS. DeMarcus Beasley on the Bloomberg business of sports show just ahead of the World Cup. You can listen to that full conversation on the Bloomberg business of sports podcast wherever you get your podcasts. Okay, but we have to talk about this yours cup, right? And talk about the state of soccer or football in the U.S. no soccer because we're talking about the U.S. right now. So let's bring in another star of the sport, national soccer Hall of Famer Bruce Murray. Bruce, welcome to the Bloomberg business of sports. Oh, thanks for having me. I appreciate it, Scarlett. So great to have you on. I've got to ask you, Argentina and France in the World Cup final seems like they were kind of destined to find each other here. It was really complicated. I mean, from the first game when Argentina got here we go again, Argentina is not going to messy won't live up to expectations. But here we are a month into it at the final. And here's Messi carrying the country on his shoulders. And this is such an amazing moment for a man who plays the game the right way. And he doesn't, you know, he doesn't want he gets back up after he gets kicked and it would be amazing for me personally to watch Messi lift the trophy because they're so the expectations of Diego Maradona, the previous generation where he carried he carried the country's hopes and actually delivered. If Messi could pull that off, it would be an amazing story. Hold on, Bruce, are you talking about flopping? I mean, I thought flopping was an art form. I thought that was part of the I'm just kidding. Now I can't stand Anita. But let's talk about, let's talk about Paris and tremendous let's talk about PSG. Let's talk about the representation of people like Messi and Mbappé and hakimi and how they have managed to rise to the top here. I mean, so what are your thoughts here? If you had to pick a team, I mean we've got RG friends coming up. I mean, we think messy and his 5th appearance that he finally gets it. You know, it's such an unbelievable talent on both teams. It's almost like the game will get stuck in a bit of a quagmire, like because there's so much talent here. Everyone knows if I try and do something extra or I do dive in that I'm going to get roasted on the other end. So you may find a little bit of a chess match. But as soon as the goal scored in the final, assuming a goal scored, everything changes, yeah. No question about it. And with the talent, you have on the field. Anything can happen. We talked so much about Messi and BAPE, but who are the other players you are keeping an eye on who could play a big role here that maybe is kind of under the radar because the focus will be on the biggest stars. You've got Greece, man, who is really coming into his own in this World Cup. You got to watch the French team on free kicks because they got a lot of size. They got the wrong. They got some big boys coming up from the back and so that's going to be an issue. I would also say that Argentina has all these young guns, the kid that scored all the goals now. You've got guys everywhere on the field from Argentina who can score. And so messy is not the only person the only this messy team has a big crew of support behind them. And like I said, anything can happen, but it's going to be really interesting. I say keep an eye on Griezmann for France. He's going to be a real danger player. And obviously in BAPE and all the other ones. I mean, going back to your career, I mean, you were the all time leader in both caps and goals for the U.S. before, you know, obviously in the 1990s, but what you were really known for with those wicked free kicks. Now, I know that's different than a penalty kick, but I wonder if you could just share some of your thoughts with us on some of these missed penalty kicks. You know, when it matters most, I'm talking about Brazil. Well, Harry Kane, exactly. I didn't want to mention England. But you know, I mean, just talk to us about the importance of penalty kicks. How, as an athlete, do you prepare for that at this stage of the game? I never, ever once was the guy who was like, oh, what's going to happen if I miss? I didn't care. I just went up there and just smashed it home. I picked, I picked the spot. I never gave my eyes would never give away where I was going. I would just keep my head down. I knew where I was going. And then bang. And I would execute the play. I think now penalties have gotten to the point where guys are trying all kinds of tricks and they're outsmarting themselves. You saw it the other day, Harry Kane. And that ball still flying down the highway. So I say pick your spot. Don't give it away. Trust yourself because the distance versus the goalkeeper's ability to get there is all the probability is with the kicker. Just execute

"Think that's what's always defined Argentina's football for me is that there's a fire. Sometimes it's a fire that crosses the line. You could say yes. But it's a fire. It's a determination to say, win it all cost mentality. And Messi, I think, has had that mentality, but he's not been outward with it. And maybe that's why it took a long time for those in Argentina who always held Diego Maradona in that one specific light to appreciate him. Let's get back to the game here because the 90 minutes was spectacular. You could say unprecedented. Beyond that for me, the extra time, which is only a half hour, was the opposite of what you would expect from extra time. I'm always when we go to extra time, not always. A lot of times you expect and then what plays out is two teams that don't want to make the mistake that ends the game. And while maybe they don't want to go to penalties, they're okay with it. They're kind of relieved, right? Yes, so not only do we get two goals, right? We get messy, what looked like a game winning goal off is right foot in the 105th minute, which is shocking in its own way. And then you get in from the spot at what like one 18 or whatever falls. Third exactly. Exactly. A hat trick in a final frame BAPE. And beyond that man, there was a million chances for both teams to win lautaro Martinez came on. He had for me very clear ones in the extra time. The same from Martinez. That saves you, that saves you the trophy. That allows you to go to penalties.

There's no way that Martinez is going to lose in a penalty shootout. And that was the case that really was the case. Again, being a factor in extra time, being a factor and regular time. Again, being a factor in the penalty shootouts, but did this man really score four penalty kicks today? Three. Three pounds. Thank you. It was three. Yes, that's right. He had to go lasso.

And so now here they are on this run that has gotten them to another World Cup final. But as you said before, in this culture, in this sport, there can only be one God. And so is that the question that Sunday is really trying to answer here is just going to settle this religious, messy versus Maradona debate. Finally? I think that I don't know. There might be an opening for two, you know, he passed away. Recently, and I think there's a sense of at least on earth, you know, a human soccer God. Messy, I think that he has truly been allowed to enter the Pantheon. Of Argentine soccer gods. And it would be lovely for him to win a World Cup. But I think that victory, he's achieved it. It's almost like Diego Maradona was mythologized. Like he's men. With Messi, I think what happened is we've seen him as more than just a sports machine. He's a person and he's a person who loves us and wants to come back home. People don't want to win the cup for Argentina. They want to win it for him. And I think that victory has been achieved no matter what happens. During the final. Jasmine garz, thank you for telling us about your home country. This was so much fun. Thank you.

But at the final whistle, I was soaked in sweat. Covered in beer and pissed, some of which was my own. And the whole thing felt so inconceivable. The head of UFC, I'm giving him a title, Dana White, for those of you who don't know who had said earlier in the week constant soccer. I think it's the least talented sport on earth. There's a reason three year olds can play soccer. You can run around the kicker ball. And they say, watch this game Dana. Watch this game because you can glimpse within it. The entirety of humanity to quote a GFP on our Twitch chat at Nina quadria who just at the end she just texted us and said, my bra is soaked. I can't think of a better way to sum this up. And I also want to raise a glass to the Argentinian fans. My bro is always soaked. The Argentinian fans have an unofficial anthem for this tournament. It's called mu cha Jos, which is like, oh, boys, guys. It's possibly the most Argentinian named song of all time. And it includes so many beautiful lines. I was born in Argentina, land of Diego Maradona, Lionel, that's messy. And Diego from the sky, we can see it cheering him on Lionel and you can feel it this journey. And I hear that song, that pressure to emulate Diego Maradona. For those who didn't see him, 1986, David, he lifted the entire team on his battery. Lifted the time nation on his back on a journey to glory. And after taking that first penalty, Lionel Messi, this was his reaction in the penalty shootout, like an Argentinian Russell Crowe giving it the full eye, you're not entertained. And I realized I looked at that and you saw his anxiety, you saw his release. You saw his freedom and you also saw the silhouette of a million ill advised tattoos on quads and biceps that would be going on a constant spin as always tonight. And for Lionel Messi, a list of this glass ray Hudson's beloved child destiny does not await day where it really looms godspeed to that human being tonight. Amazing,

"And I knew Liverpool would defend well right at the start of the game of fabinho commits two tackles and gets away with it. Crashes into another tackle, the referee lets him get away with it. That's what happens at Enfield and once the referee lets Liverpool get away with challenges like that. You know they're going to have every chance of winning the game. It's absolutely disgusting, I think. Robots anti Liverpool ways. The services of the Champions League Final. It's like shouting at Stevie for being Liverpool TV, taking it the other way now. I mean, you've got to think that Napoli have been so good this year. Knew that buying a disaster over the top in the group. You got to feel that they were in second gear. There's such a good side. You and I were watching the Tottenham game because it was sorry, ebb and flow and not have been flowing. So to speak in the first half. So yeah, you know, as God mentioned, not in a huge game at the weekend, there are goal scoring phenomenon at the moment, generally, domestically. They are going to be a huge threat in the Champions League, I think. I mean, clearly, huge favorites for Serie A at the moment. But I think they're going to be a huge threat in the Champions League the way they play. And they've got up front and from the middle of the park. And for a Liverpool, I mean, how many times do we sit here this year and say, is this the kickstart to this season? Right. Who knows? We thought it would have been. Wow, look at the book. Natalie, a 14 to one. Tell you what, nappy aren't a bad bet. A few said to me now, a two legged affair. Between not playing Liverpool. I picked napley all day. Yeah. All day, over a 180 minutes. I think that's fair enough as well. Madrid 11 to one looked very generous as well indeed. Gather priority for Napoli obviously is domestically, the that domestic title, there's so much Herald. This season though, yeah? I don't know that they're really sinking in terms of priority, but the priority for financial reasons, of course, was to get out of this group. They've done that. When people choose to prioritize one or the other, let's not forget. If you get knocked out in the round of 16, it's just another bit just two extra games, right? I think like most clubs, they don't quite know how to prepare they don't know what's coming up because we have this big massive stop in the middle of the season. We like to call the World Cup. And then you kind of reassess where you are afterwards. But sure. They would love to win their first league title without Diego Maradona. This is a silly question concerned as you, rob, but who will go further in the Champions League. Napoli or Liverpool. I think I'm hoping Napoli do, because I think they are a good side. That actually I think looks an outstanding player coming from that left hand side.

companies facing possible delistings that added more than 80 companies including JD.com pen door door and Billy Billy to this expanding list of firms that face possible expulsion excuse me from American exchanges Let's get more now with Edwin Chan Bloomberg's Asia tech Lima leader who joins us from Hong Kong So this is just really going to upset investor sentiment at the time when we'd been hoping for a deal between regulators in Beijing and Washington tell us the latest Edwin Yes Thanks Julia I think the consensus right now is that at least from the Chinese side there is some sort of resolve to try and try and fix the situation Bloomberg has reported for instance that the CSR C is marshaling some kind of effort to open up at least some of the audit work papers to U.S. regulators And that includes a state owned enterprise which is a step I think It would never have considered previously but again from the Chinese side it seems to be some kind of impetus to resolve this situation Now from the U.S. side it's less clear I think in terms of peak as we call it in terms of the audit rules there are very clear guidelines on the fact that they want access to all the audit working papers that we know very negotiations going on between both sides But right now the fact that the SEC continues to add Chinese companies to the list means that we're not at the point where we can point to a grapefruit When this began from the China's perspective it was always the concern about access to big data and not so much the accounting rules Is that changed in any way That's a much broader issue but you're right The overarching fear here from the Beijing side of things is that overseas listed Chinese companies would be sort of a window or an avenue through which sensitive Chinese data would be leaked to foreign forces as it were So that was the central issue that ensnared Dede are back in June or July of last year when they listed the CDC law immediately launched its crackdown on data security within the right sharing giant precisely because it was concerned that the rush to hit the listing and that they would be vulnerable future over the long term to data leakage Let's talk as well about what we're seeing with China's hike vision I mean it is plummeted by the 10% limit with the U.S. mulling these new sanctions on this company as well So this is the first Chinese tech firm added to the so called far reaching list It just kind of shows you how much I guess uncertainty to my earlier point there is an investing in a lot of these companies but what are the latest sanctions here Yeah so high vision had been added about three years ago to various what we call sanctions lists of black blacklists including the pretty well-known entities list the same one that ensnared Huawei Many years ago the fresh curves that White House is now considering is more far reaching I think it extends not just to the sale of American technology and American businesses doing business with hike vision It pretty much is sort of a blanket ban on doing business with this company Now hike vision has been one of the more high profile companies at the center of the controversy over the treatment of Muslim minorities in Santiago Which as you know is kind of a hot button issue in the U.S. as well And a persistent point of tension between Beijing and Washington So I'm sorry to interrupt dead when I was just looking at the Hangzhou tech index a year to date we're down nearly 23% but if you look at the damage done over the last 52 weeks we're off more than 46% Have institutions by and large thrown in the towel when it comes to tech stocks exposed to China I think sentiment waxes and wanes on Chinese textiles in general I would say that the easiest way to think about it right now is that investors are sort of shot after sort of an unprecedented 2021 in which everybody was subject to the winds of change from Beijing and to central of regulations that even to this day I think the.

Now, these stories become more and more grand when leaked without any corroborating evidence or investigation that puts everything into a certain damning context. Why are they rushing these stories to press? Just go to the police and make your case. If Chris north is found to have done these crimes, then he should pay the maximum price for his ridiculous behavior. But right now, what's happening is this is all slander.

The Political Legacy of Diego Maradona
"So today. Let's discuss. What may diego. Maradona an idol of the working class throughout the world. And so today on the show. We have the pleasure. And the honour of having dave's 'iran who's the sports editor for the nation magazine host of the edge of sports podcast and the co host of w w collision with eaton thomas which you can hear under ups w thursday's or anytime on wpro w fm dot org. He joins us today over. The phone is a pleasure and honor tabby on the shell dave zairean. It's great to be here. Thanks for having me is good to have you with us today and it's been a whirlwind of emotions both for me personally requested passing donor. Because i don't know what to began its Figures that for me personally. I thought we would continue to live on in a way. He'll continue to do so. But you know we started this program by quoting water galeano and you wrote not one but two articles in the nation magazine on the donor and the first one did you did. Last week. Actually called it galliano as well. So let's begin their liberate on what you call it from galeano last week because you know for no other reason that it's a shame that gagliano is not alive. Today to perhaps best crystallize the importance of madonna nominee in the world and he probably best crystallize this. This passing perhaps a better than the both of us combined. Yeah i mean. I guess i would start just by reading the words of galliano about diego. Maradona eduardo gagliano is just the absolute master of words. Somebody who can make poetry and prose intertwined with one another and produce something perfect but this is what had wow diano wrote about diego maradonna that i quoted. He's written a great deal about maradonna. But this is what i quoted. No one can predict the devilish tricks. This inventor of surprises will dream up for the simple joy of throwing the computers off track. Trixie never repeats. He's not quick more like a short legged bull but he carries the ball so into this foot and he's got is all over. His body is acrobatics. Light up the field in the frigid soccer of the end of the century which detest defeat and forbids all fund. That man was one of the few prove that fantasy can be efficient and inside that praise of maradonna. somebody who's as the ball sewn to his split because gagliano put so expertly. Of course you know in that statement is a critique of what soccer had become by the end of the twentieth century which in galliano's mine had been very flattened in very become boring faithfully As more and more countries left reflected an indigenous style of play and more countries started to play like one another and teams played like one another in a way. That was very very risk averse until maradona. Who was you know in both his life on the field and off the field was anything. But risk-averse He maradonna saw kindred. Spirit Somebody who could play with the efficiency that's needed the modern game but also had the ability to make you dream about what the possibilities of a human being could do and be On the soccer field and so in addition we encourage everyone to check out the writings of eduardo. Galeano as it pertains football because it's not just the xs and os. It goes way beyond that. Now even in regards to to madonna but the game itself as well. I'll just say on us. Wrote wrote a whole thin book about soccer called soccer in sun and shadow Of course if available in spanish and english and it's the most beautiful faca writing that you can imagine. I would recommend that this month for anyone looking for a good book to read during the holiday season. What can you tell us about the poverty. Madonna grew up in that perhaps shaped his political views later. Because you know we we just mentioned the the professionalization of football as as a global sport in how it's become sort of predictable and cold as you mentioned there's galeano mentioned but he grew up at a time where it's still not as polished as we see it today and this is very important and understanding you know his views later in life correct. Oh absolutely at Giggle maradona like to say that. He was born in the mud and never forgot where he came from and when he said he was born in the mud literally it was mud he grew up in the badio ueno status and he was the fifth of eight children and he grew up without running water or electricity and that always feel as if he was a kindred spirit with everybody on earth who lived in poverty in this globe. That's built on savage inequalities. Madonna saw himself as a tribune for those even when he was at his most his most wealthy even when he was at his most Flamboyant he never forgot where he came from he always stood particularly with the poor of the global south And that's not just in latin america that that's all over the world and My favorite Diego maradona story is diego. Maradona was also a very devout roman catholic and he was able to meet the pope Pope john paul the second and he said this is what he said after leaving his meeting with the pope he said i was in the vatican and i saw all these golden ceilings and afterwards i heard the pope's say that the church was worried about the welfare of the poor
There Will Never Be Another Maradona
"So add. We've seen this incredible outpouring of support for diego maradona's since he passed away last week to say goodbye to donna. Filing past the coffin and coming out the side crying country declared three days of national mourning. There were massive crowds showing up to see his body at the national palace in windows holidays by maybe about a mile from the of maradonna. And i'm not sure if people here in the us really understand how massive figure diego maradona is argentina. To explain that to people. I've been trying to explain it this week. Two americans and the thing that i landed on. Was you know you hear a lot of the mythology about the american dream right. But are essentially the argentine dream. There is not social mobility for people who are the visions which is kind of argentina equivalent. Savannah's there is not the social mobility for those people to rise and improve their lives except for one thing and that's football and diego who was born in visa theory which is very poor neighborhood. He is the proof of that. My father works such a lot to supporters. Eight of us children that made us. It made us very strong. It made everyone strong. Not only did he. Rise from the bottom rung of society abject poverty but he rose by fifteen. He was given an apartment by the club. He was blamed for argentinos juniors. He was supporting his whole. Family's whole family were living in an apartment. Thank god the one who could reach the highs until he became the most famous washington person probably apart from the pope. He austin on the world stage in a way that almost nobody ever could three. He's adult way he's beauties is something that was immortal. Seems like a lot of the mythology ising around. Maradonna comes from this idea of lp bay. Ed can you explain what that phrase means and its importance in. Argentinian culture. At the bay. Essentially it's it's the talented kid argentines in classical stories grow up playing on portrayals which are small kind of dog pitches and that's kind of a natural home of the p. bay which is this talented youngster. Often you know when i was in argentina i did some coaching with kids. And if you watch them play competitor like watching english kids play anguish. Kids play english football. You know it's been rough and they play in a very kind of permanent fashion the kids. They're all trying to dribble ten people there all falling over there all diving around in the peabody is essential oftentimes number ten. It's the guy around which the entire team operates. You essentially put several plus outlet who just defensively minded to make up for the fact that you've got this one super talented guy who's going to create everything and obviously every team that diego maradona was in was built around him. Put him in the middle. Give him the ball and just let something great happen quite often it
