Maradona visits Mohun Bagan!

The God entered the temple! Maradona visits the Mohun Bagan tent and then entertains a houseful stadium at the Mohun Bagan club ground. 31 years ago the then God, Pele had visited Mohun Bagan club and now Maradona...the two legends of world football have now become connected with Mohun Bagan... Maradona came into the club tent an then spening sometime, headed for the ground. There he entertained the crowd with antics befitting someone of Maradona's repute...juggling the ball and balancing it on his head and then sending them into the crowd... The crowd went berserk when the soccer lord kissed the Ground and then sent flying kisses to the crowd... However, Maradona was scheduled to attend a few more functions and already running beyond schedule hurried his way out of the Maidan tent of the National club of India, Mohun Bagan...
