Soccer superstar Maradona urges Pope to reform Vatican

Maradona plea

Former Argentine football star Diego Maradona has called on Pope Francis to push on with reforms and transform the Vatican into an institution that offers more to the faithful, reports The Catholic Herald.

'The Vatican, for me, is a lie because instead of giving to people it takes away. All popes have done this and I don’t want him to do it,' Maradona said during an interview with a Naples TV station, according to Reuters.

'I am disappointed with the Vatican but I believe in you because you are making changes and pointing us towards more human things, things that I would like to see in the Church,' he added.

Maradona was speaking in Dubai, where he currently lives and works.
