The 1986 World Cup winner continued a bizarre night for himself by raising the middle finger of BOTH hands – while a colleague in the Saint Petersburg Stadium tried to hold him back.

Diego Maradona will no longer be paid as an ambassador of world soccer governing body FIFA, Daily Post reports.

This is following the Argentina legend’s failure to control his emotions during their 2-1 win over Nigeria in the World Cup last Group D game on Tuesday.

The football icon celebrated Marcos Rojo’s winning goal for Argentina by raising his middle finger at fans.

FIFA termed his behaviour as embarrassing and provocative hence he will no longer receive the £10,000 he was receiving from the world soccer governing body, according to OwnGoal.

Maradona also ignored doctors advice not to watch the final minutes of the clash thereby putting his health in danger.

FIFA has also warned him to be of good conduct in the remaining games he will attend at the World Cup.

A possible stadium ban awaits the former Napoli forward if he acts in the same manner as he did against Nigeria.
