The Argentine legend believed that the referee's decisions in the decisive match of 2018 were in Juve's favor.

The son of the late football legend Diego Maradona claimed that his father knew that things would happen in Juve's favor in their controversial match against

Inter

in 2018.

In 2018, Inter lost 3-2 to Juventus in a dramatic match, and this result led Sarri's team to the Serie A title. Maradona was angry that the referee did not send off Miralem Pjanic for a harsh tackle on Rafinha. Still, he was not surprised that decisions were made in favor of Juventus in that vital match. In an interview with Canale 8, Diego JR made some controversial remarks about his father's views on the game.

He said: “I saw that match with Dad in Dubai.

“Juventus were being outplayed, but when Pjanic stayed on after the incident with Rafinha he turned to me and said: ‘You’ll see now that they find a way to let them win it.’

“And so it proved. I couldn’t believe it, Diego saw things before we did. We’re humans and he was from another world.”
