It is really hard to describe what it is like to watch an animated Diego Maradona on the football field.
Remember when the Argentine legend was filmed making two-handed middle-finger gestures to fans during Argentina's win over Nigeria in the final World Cup pool game?
But things were different when the legend took the field recently. Maradona, who took the job as Dorados de Sinaloa manager this season, was questioned in a post-match interview about his thoughts regarding the MX League and its current level.
"What do you think about the level of the MX league?"
After a long pause, a visibly lost Maradona responds with: "ummmmmm laaaa ayeeeee aaaah"
Eager to get nuggets from the veteran, commentators wait for a response as live TV coverage goes on to record the most awkward 24 seconds you will ever watch.
Thanks to Maradona's antics, the video shared by ESPN UK on Monday has gone insanely viral on Twitter.

Fortunately, unlike the interview, Maradona's time in Mexico has been eventful as Dorados have already booked a spot in the semi-final of Ascenso MX. After 1-0 win, Maradona was seen at the centre of the dressing room at the final whistle and celebrated the achievement with the Dorados players, nzherald reported.

Earlier this year, the 58-year-old made headlines for his maddening appearance in the football World Cup.
