People remember Maradona doing keepie-uppies, but only in the Munich 1989 UEFA semi-final
New timeline: Maradona did keepie-uppies only in the Stuttgart 1989 UEFA final
In 1989 Maradona was at his peak. He played for Napoli, and helped them win their a Serie A title, 1987. He led Argentina to their second World Cup win, and helped Napoli to the second leg of their UEFA Cup semi final in Munich.
Many remember him performing an exhibition keepie-uppie routine at times, but honestly, I have no idea what that means.
There were 70,000 people in the stadium and Maradona went on the field. We’re on the other side of the field, warming up like Germans: seriously, focused. There’s music playing, the song “Live is Life”, and to the rhythm of the song Maradona started juggling the ball. So we stopped our warm-up. What’s this guy doing? He’s juggling off his shoulders. And we couldn’t warm up anymore because we had to watch this guy.
