Guillem Balagué's 'Maradona: The Boy, The Rebel, The God (ft. Guillem Balagué)

Almost a year to the day since Maradona's death, we're joined by the brilliant journalist, author and Spanish football expert Guillem Balagué to discuss his new book 'Maradona: The Boy, The Rebel, The God'. We talk 1986, the church of Maradona and Diego's unlikely friendship with Fidel Castro. Plus Guillem teaches us exactly how he writes a football book from scratch.
