Maradona 'excited' to meet Sourav Ganguly
Football legend Diego Maradona is excited for his second visit to Kolkata and has already started the countdown. The highlight of the Argentine's September 18-20 sojourn in the build up to the Durga Puja festival will be an exhibition match with former India captain Sourav Ganguly.
"Just 100 days to go for my Kolkata visit and meet 'Prince of Kolkata, Dada'," an excited Maradona posted on his official Facebook page. According to organisers of the private trip to Kolkata, Maradona will send a pair of "autographed boot" for Ganguly to wear for this one-hour exhibition match which is likely to be held at the Aditya School of Sports in Barasat on the Mahalaya day of September 19. Colombia football legend Carlos Valderrama is likely to join Maradona in the match.
