Diego Maradona isn’t happy about his likeness being used.

Posted By | On 31st, Mar. 2017 Under News


Konami will be facing legal action from ex-footballer and legend Diego Maradona for including his likeness in Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 without permission.

Posting on Facebook, Maradona – who played for Argentina and Barcelona and deemed FIFA’s Player of the Century in 2000 – said that he had “heard yesterday that the Japanese company Konami uses my image for its game PES 2017.

“My lawyer Matias Morla will initiate the corresponding legal actions. I hope this is not another scam.” Konami has yet to issue a statement on Maradona’s complaint.

The complaint stems from Maradona’s likeness being used for myClub mode in PES 2017. This is where players can create their own dream team composed of former and current professional footballers.

What are your thoughts on Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 using Maradona’s likeness and how will it pan out for Konami? Let us know in the comments and stay tuned for further updates in he coming days.
