Football legend Diego Maradona has expressed disappointment at how his new documentary uses the word "hustle" to describe his life.

Diego Maradona, which premiered at the Cannes, has upset the Argentinian. "I played football and I made money running after a ball. I didn't hustle anyone," he told Univision in an interview.

"If they are putting that there to get people to go and see it then I think they are going about it the wrong way.

"I don't like the title, and if I don't like the title I am not going to like the film. Don't go and see it."

The former Argentina team captain, who missed the Cannes premiere due to a shoulder injury, is yet to see it screened.
