GPBL Alert – “Denied justice”: the last goal of the Pibe de Oro
On June 22, 1986 Maradona scored two memorable goals against England, one with the “Mano de Dios”. The hand touch was not sanctioned by the referee and the goal validated. It was the golden era of the Pibe de Oro but nobody would have expected that the seeds of Italian tax troubles had just been planted. After more than 30 years the Supreme Court has decided in favour of Maradona, who in the meanwhile has passed away, stating that an opposite decision would have lead to a manifest case of “denied justice” and “double taxation”. Maybe … the watch that was seized in 2006 by the Tax Police is still working!
