"Maradona thought German striker was a ballboy
By Ryan Bailey"
But if you understand Spanish would notice that Maradona never said
Mueller was a ballboy.
He said something about not sharing the conference with a player, but
with the rival coach.
Afterwards, he confusingly, says the he apologizes to the player.
That he didn't know he was a player.
But he never mentioned the word "ballboy".
Or I am missing something?
P.D.: BTW I read somewhere that Maradona is a Spanish surname, with
origin in a particular town, which I can recall. I also thought it
was an Italian surname. In Spanish it sounds Italian, anyway.

Free not to believe me, as I really don't have any source at hand, but I
remember reading many times in the late 80s that Italian journalist had
tracked down part of the ancestry of Maradona, Platini and Francescoli to a
small area nearby the city of Novara, somewhere midway between Milan and
Turin, North of Italy.
