    Maradona asked by FIFA “to behave in a respectful manner”

    FIFA was aware of incidents such as that during Argentina's vital group game against Nigeria in St. Petersburg last Tuesday

    Diego Maradona might be a giant of the game's history, FIFA said on Friday, but even he must show respect to other fans at World Cup stadiums. Asked about complaints that the 57-year-old had made an obscene gesture at other spectators after Argentina snatched a late win on Wednesday, FIFA's World Cup chief executive Colin Smith told reporters that the former Argentine player was a valued part of its Legends program to promote the game.
