Diego Maradona completes his mazy run before pulling the trigger during their infamous 1986 World Cup quarter-final against England at the Azteca in Mexico

Kaiser paid homage by recalling how he experienced the magic of the global football legend at that time

The length of Kaiser Hamid’s playing career almost matches with that of Diego Maradona, who passed away Wednesday at the age of 60 due to heart attack. 

One of the country’s most prolific and celebrated defenders also won his first top-tier title in Mohammedan Sporting Club Limited jersey in 1986. 

The Bangladesh legend paid homage by recalling how he experienced the magic of the global football legend at that time.

“We, at Mohammedan, became unbeaten champion in 1986. That is why the memory of 1986 World Cup is still there in mind. Although I am a Brazil supporter, he is my favorite player. I liked him as a player. He scored some outstanding goals. I also remember his emotional reaction after the 1990 World Cup final. They played really well and could have won the final.

“People will never forget how Argentina won the 1986 World Cup under his leadership. His two outstanding goals against England are still lingering in my mind, especially the one where he dribbled past half a dozen players from the halfway line. These are the best goals I’ve ever seen. His popularity increased significantly after those goals and it spread across all over the world. It’s sad to see such man leave us very early.”
