Diego Maradona passed away on Wednesday at the age of 60. Maldini has interesting memories of Maradona.

Paolo Maldini

claimed that he felt ashamed after watching the videos related to the game between him and

Maradona

and told '

I was always late on him

.'

Napoli's most glorious days in the Italian league were in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Where

Maradona

was the star of the team.

Maldini

believes it was impossible to control Maradona.

"

You could not catch him,

"

Maldini

told Telefoot in France ahead of tonight's Lille-Milan match in the Europa League.

"I was next to him at the Serie A Hall of Fame awards and they showed some of our footage together. I always considered myself a very fair defender, but I have to admit in those videos I was doing some horrible fouls on him, but it was only because he always anticipated me and I was therefore late.

"He was so quick and was kicked to pieces all through his career, all through the game. I felt ashamed and apologised to him after that clip.

"I also realised even more than I had remembered just how quickly he controlled the ball and changed direction. He really was extraordinary."
