Diego Armando Maradona Sinagra (born on 20 September 1986 in Naples) is an Italian footballer and beach soccer player, currently plays for U.S. Arzanese



Diego Jr. was a result of an affair between Diego Maradona and a young Neapolitan woman, Cristiana Sinagra. He was brought up by his mother in the Province of Naples.

Diego Sinagra had a passion for football and started playing at a young age showing promise by emulating the skills of his father. At eleven years old he was a part of the Napoli youth squad. Diego first met his father in 2003, in the course of a golf tournament in Rome. Sinagra represented the Italian national team at under-17 age level. In 2004, the young Diego joined the youth squad of Genoa for a season.

Playing in Eccellenza and in Serie D

His start in first team football came in the amateur leagues during 2005 when he joined Cervia, a team of the Eccellenza division of Emilia-Romagna, which was the subject of a national reality show, named Campioni - Il sogno.

He joined Internapoli, from Eccellenza Campania, in January 2006; after having been without a team for the first half of the 2005–06 season, he only played two games for the club as he suffered an injury which kept him sidelined. In 2007 he joined Quarto, another club in the Campanian Eccellenza;[1] Quarto were victorious in the Eccellenza playoffs that season and were promoted to Serie D. He then agreed to stay at Quarto for the 2007–08 Serie D season, but left the club by mutual consent on November 16, 2007 following a head coach replacement which caused him concerns about his role in the team.[2] He then signed for Venafro, a Molisan Serie D team, a few weeks later.[3] On January 21, 2008, Maradona scored the first goal with Venafro from 30 metres.[4] At the end of the season Maradona Jr left Venafro and he was bought by a beach soccer team, A.S.D. Mare di Roma.

On December 2, 2008, he signed for F.C America –(Eccellenza Campania).[5] In August 2009 he then signed for Juve Stabia, but on 11 September 2009 he left the team.[6] He currently plays for U.S. Arzanese[7]

Beach soccer

On April 29, Diego Jr. joined the Beach Soccer Italy National Team for the Beach Soccer World Cup's qualifications which will be held from May 11 to 18 in Spain.[1] On May 12 Diego Junior made his debut in the national team in the match against Greece. [2] Sinagra played four matches in the FIFA World Cup's qualifications and eventually Italy placed fourth, qualifying to the World Cup. In June 2008 Diego left Venafro and he was bought by a beach soccer team, A.S.D. Mare di Roma. He made his debut in Beach Soccer's Serie A on June 27, 2008 in the match against Alma Juventus Fano, scoring a goal. He scored six goals in three matches for Mare di Roma, convincing Italy's Coach Magrini to include him for the Beach Soccer World Cup.

Italy eventually placed second in the World Cup, losing 5–3 in the final against Brazil. Sinagra scored two goals for Italy in the competition (one in the final). In the championship Sinagra scored a dozen goals allowing his team, Mare di Roma, to advance to the final phase for the Italian title. Mare di Roma was however eliminated in the quarterfinals.

In 2009 Maradona Jr. was bought by Napoli Beach Soccer. Maradona Jr. scored eight goals, allowing his team to win the Italian beach soccer championship for the first time in its history.
