Maradona doesn't understand Butcher's stance

8:05 am on 19 November 2008

Diego Maradona says he won't lose any sleep over Terry Butcher's refusal to shake hands with him at tomorrow's football friendly against Scotland.

Maradona will make his debut as Argentina coach at Hampden Park, while Butcher will be on the other bench as Scotland assistant coach.

Butcher was a member of the England team that was eliminated from the 1986 World Cup by Maradona's Hand of God goal in the quarter-final.

Butcher says he and many of the squad have never forgiven Maradona for the goal that was scored off his hand.

Maradona was also quick to point out that England won the World Cup in 1966 with a goal that didn't cross the line.
