It seems that Diego Maradona is not very fond of his former son-in-law, Sergio Aguero.

El Diego, celebrating his 53rd birthday, hit out at the ex-husband of his daughter, Giannina, calling him ‘a wimp’ and threatening to take legal action against the City striker.

“He’s a wimp, who I don’t even want to name,” Maradona is quoted as saying on an Argentinian radio station.

“I spoke to Benjamin [Aguero’s son] on Skype two days ago and he said to me: ‘Grandpa if I don’t see you, happy birthday’. I began to cry.”

“In my daughter’s next meeting with a lawyer, I want to be by her side. We’ll see who can talk. The next time I want to be there to see if he [Aguero] says anything.”

After four years of marriage, Aguero and Giannina parted ways earlier this year. The couple has one child, Benjamin, who currently lives with his mother in Madrid.

Despite the unfortunate familial circumstances Aguero is in the form of his life this season at City, having scored 10 goals in 11 matches.

    That would be an epic battle…Fat Maradona chasing Kun Aguero around the octagon.

    I liked Diego better with the beard and without that UGLY slicked down hair. Nonetheless, Diego, you make sure you’re sitting with your daughter at EVERY court hearing.
