The Maradona Opus
The Maradona Opus is the ultimate tribute to honour the legacy of arguably the greatest footballer the world has ever seen.
"Even if I played for a million years, I’d never come close to Maradona. Not that I’d want to anyway. He’s the greatest there’s ever been”
Charting the journey from his humble beginnings playing street football in the shanty town of Villa Fiorito, to his crowning glory of captaining Argentina to World Cup success in Mexico ’86, and beyond. Maradona’s career is celebrated through a collection of wonderfully evocative photographs reproduced on an unprecedented scale.
The Maradona Opus is limited to 1010 copies and each one contains a special signature sheet individually hand-signed by Maradona and mounted onto the inside cover of the Opus.
Foreword by Pelé
From one legendary footballer to another, the Opus features a personally-written foreword by Edson Arantes do Nascimento – otherwise known as the great Pelé.
The Opus also comes with a beautiful 12” x 16” photographic print, presented on a heavy-duty archival paper stock with a satin finish.
The Opus features rare and unseen photography from Maradona’s own private archives, including those from his formative years as a footballer.
Specially-commissioned essays lay the foundation for each chapter, and Matt Dickinson Chief Sports writer from The Times also contributes an exclusive interview piece crafted from several sit-downs with Maradona.

The Peter Jones Foundation was founded in 2005 by entrepreneur and well-known business investor, Peter Jones CBE, and it provides young people and disadvantaged groups with the enterprise skills and experiences to better prepare them for successful employment or self-employment.
We work with young people of all ages in schools and colleges across the UK and increasingly abroad. We offer programmes that respond to the challenges young people face and aim to encourage, educate and empower students to grow and fulfil their potential.
We encourage students to form their first business and compete with teams either locally or nationally through our flagship enterprise competition, Tycoon.
We educate students through our suite of accredited courses and qualifications in Business, Enterprise, and Entrepreneurship developed with Pearson, at Level 2 and Level 3, through the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy.
We empower all our graduates by supporting them into one of three successful pathways: starting a business, gaining employment, or securing a place at university.
Entrepreneurship gives young people the opportunity to explore their passions and discover if they can turn their ideas into a business and take control of their future. Not only this, the wide range of transferable skills they learn through our activities improves their future employability.
It’s our belief that by giving young people the opportunity to explore their passions, whilst learning and studying for a qualification, they discover if they can turn their ideas into a business and take control of their future.
