Maradona Owe Money in Italy

Diego Armando Maradona celebrated his 50th birthday last week on the lawn of San Paolo stadium in Naples (southern Italy) as its problems with the IRS, which is 37 million euros, hinder a possible visit by the Argentine star to Italy.

Although in recent months is toying with the possibility that "The Fuzz" again putting on his football boots to play a charity game with some of his old friends in Naples, his
debt to the Italian tax authorities think he has second thoughts about the visit.

The possible return for his 50th birthday alerted the Italian authorities and Equitalia, the public company in charge of collecting taxes in Italy, as recalled in September that
"Maradona is the amount that the Treasury is money owed to all Italians."

A debt which amounts to almost 37 million euros and has been building up for years due to non-payment of tax on individuals income tax during the second half of the decade of the
80's, while playing for Naples, and interests which increases nearly three thousand euros daily.

Besides earrings, Italian authorities confiscated in 2006 by Rolex brand watch worth 11,000 euros advantage of the visits to the country.

Perhaps for these reasons, Maradona has decided to postpone his return to the city where he played from 1984 to 1991 and where he lived much sporting success as one of the darkest periods of its

In addition to winning two league titles, one Italian Cup, a UEFA Cup and become an icon of a generation, the end of the eighties led to one of the most difficult moments in the life of "10."

The numerous scandals and a positive test for cocaine in a drugs test after a match against Bari made him leave Italy in 1991.

However, his excesses have not diminished the love he professes the city of Naples, a veritable shrine to football.

Without their presence on the field but with the memory of the years who played for Naples, his followers have developed a peculiar conclusion that, under the name "Marathon Maradona", includes
exposure of a hair from "The Fuzz", a papier-mâché figure of life size display of a figurine surostro Bethlehem.

Horford and Hawks in contract talks

If the Atlanta Hawks and the All-Star center Al Horford will come to an agreement on a contract extension, the player says he probably will not happen until just before the deadline.

Horford said Monday that the Hawks and agent Arn Tellem, who have been in talks for nearly a month, will meet later this week regarding a contract extension he signed as the selected number three in the draft 2007.

If no agreement is reached by Monday, Horford would become a restricted free agent next summer once the Hawks will extend a qualifying offer by 30 June.

"I think you'll really get to the last day," said Horford.

So far, only two players taken in the draft 2007 have secured contract extensions.

The number two, Kevin Durant, received a five-year agreement and $ 85 million of Oklahoma City and the co-Horford on the Universite de Florida, Joakim Noah, the number nine, she landed a five-year and 60 million plus incentives of Chicago.

The real value of the extensions could change within the next collective bargaining agreement. Under the current labor agreement, which expires in June, the Hawks Horford can offer an extension of up to five years and $ 82 million.

Horford said he was not nervous or anxious about the deadline. "All I can do is concentrate on playing," he said. "Obviously, I hope we can do.

I can not control that. . . .

I've always been that way when it comes to something beyond me, and I can not do anything about it.

All I can do is move forward, "he added.

The advantage of Horford in obtaining an extension is that he would not be a free agent during what could be a labor impasse next summer. Otherwise, Horford options include playing for the Atlanta offer qualified in 2011-12, signed an offer with another team or return to try to negotiate an extension with the Hawks.
