FIFA Head of Media Delia Fischer denies Diego Maradona claims that he was refused access to Estádio do Maracanã for Argentina’s 2-1 win against Bosnia and Herzegovina
FIFA Head of Media Delia Fischer has denied that Diego Maradona was refused access to press area at the Estádio do Maracanã.
The former Argentina international has accreditation to cover games for Venezuelan TV and was attempted to watch Argentina’s 2-1 win against Bosnia and Herzegovina.
“He is accredited as a journalist but we have not received any report on this,” she Fischer, as reported by Daily Mail. “As long as he is going into the correct media area there should not be an issue.
“Maybe he tried to go somewhere where he didn't have the necessary access but we have no record of that happening.”
