Diego Maradona believes a passionate love of his team can help Argentina lift the World Cup — but he'll always be a ladies’ man.

After Thursday’s match, Maradona turned wide-eyed and left no doubt as to his thoughts on the matter.

“I prefer women. I am dating Veronica, she is 31 years old, she is blonde, she is beautiful,” he said, causing an outburst of laughter at the post-match news conference.

The 49-year-old Maradona heaped praise on his side after their second win.

“I am grateful to the players for the job they do, but that is it,” said the former midfield magician.

“We have a great team here and we are all very frank and open. Whatever happens in the family, or if someone's coming late to a training session, we talk about it openly,” said Maradona

“I believe talking about things is better than punishing someone or giving out a fine, players respond much better.”
