Hi, any of you know whether 'Yo Soy el Diego' and 'El Diego' by Maradona were ever translated into English? I look through all online bookshops and they seem to have only Spanish ones. Thanks!!

no but maybe this
will tell you something about his story


Try this it for the UK; do not know if that helps:

http://www.edirectory.co.uk/pf/pages/moreinfoa.asp?pe=CBIGGGBQ_+El+Diego+%96+Diego+Maradona&cid=880


a very decent extract http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diego_Armando_Maradona&rank=3&source=AstWebSearch&searchType=MS&partner=Google&query=maradona+autobiography+El+Diego


also Martin Amis' take:

Unfortunately, I cannot get hold of that guardian serialisation; I could not find their archives.

hope this helps

Good luck

As far as I know it's only available in Spanish. My copy is the paperback edition in Spanish.

There's an English translation out. The Guardian had done a serialization - three of them to be precise... I tried a cursory search on Google and the Guardian's football and books websites but couldn't find anything; I'll post it here in case I do come across it again.

Guardian's hidden pearls

sorry, you are right.
i should have said:

the UK Guardian doesn't do archives of the stuff we wanna find...

Incidentally, I once did a long search for a great Guardian article I read about Amis and his father's revealing comments on his son's writing.

The search was unsuccsessful; somehow the paper/website decided to kept their pearls to themselves...
