Birthday boy Diego Maradona feted in Abu Dhabi

31-Oct-2016 :

Abu Dhabi: Diego Maradona celebrated his 56th birthday in unusual fashion on Sunday evening – by officially opening his new restaurant in Abu Dhabi.

The football legend – looking slim and trim in a matching grey T-shirt and trousers – was greeted by hordes of frenzied fans at Café Diego in Nation Galleria mall on the Corniche.

He was joined by two of his footballing friends, Jorge Burruchaga, his ex-Argentina teammate, who scored the winning goal in the 1986 World Cup final, and Clarence Seedorf, the former Dutch international and four-time Champions League winner.

The trio – and, of course, particularly Maradona – were besieged by people seeking autographs and selfies once inside Café Diego.
