He wasn't a bad guy--just had substance abuse problems. But he was beloved by teammates and in Napoli, and obviously Argentina
Didn't recognize the majority of his own kids? If he was so worried about his money, he should have managed himself much better. But the man grew up very poor. I am truly not one to judge. His life is one of hope, being extremely talented and tragedy.

Tragedy, no doubt. Poverty, becoming a pro at 15, drugs. It's easy to see how a kid like that loses his way.

You have to take responsibility at some point for your own actions. Or else you end up a tragedy. I have no idea how many friends or acquaintances I've outlived and am only mid 40s.

Being on opioids 24/7 for medical reasons, I can tell you what leads to recreational "drug dependency". Depression. Been there, too.
