Diego Maradona Rats Out Argentina's 1994 World Cup Team

Ohhhhhhh, so you thought Diego Maradona was just gonna go quietly into the night after Argentina refused to resign him to a contract after the 2010 World Cup? FOH!

Maradona, who recently signed on to become the manager of Al Wasl FC in Dubai, just revealed that a large number of the players on Argentina's 1994 World Cup team took a banned substance before a qualifying match for the Cup in 1993. Maradona—who was infamously sent home from the '94 WC after a positive drug test—claims the team doctor put the substance directly into players' coffee and also says that FIFA vice president Julio Grondona, the head of Argentina's Football Association, knew all about the doping that was going on.
