London: Diego Maradona, who died Wednesday at the age of 60, was endowed with “greatness but not sportsmanship,” said former England goalkeeper Peter Shilton.

Shilton regrets that Maradona never apologised for the goal, the first of two he scored in the match, won 2-1 in Mexico City.

The Argentina forward was “the greatest player I have ever faced,” admitted Shilton. “What I don’t like is that he never apologized,” he said.

“At no time has he admitted to having cheated and said he would like to apologize,” he notes. “Instead, he used his expression ‘hand of God.’ It wasn’t fair. It seems he had greatness in him, but unfortunately no sportsmanship, ”he concludes.

The 71-year-old notes that his life “has long been linked with that of Diego Maradona, and not in the way I would have liked”.

“But I am saddened to learn of his death at such a young age,” he adds. “He was without a doubt the greatest player I have ever faced and my thoughts are with his family.”

Shilton said he hoped the famous goal “won’t mar Maradona’s legacy”.
