Buenos Aires - Argentinian football legend Diego Maradona will work as a commentator at the World Cup for South American television channel teleSUR, an Argentine website reports.

"This is football with politics, that is what I like most," he added. Maradona will work together with Victor Hugo Morales, one of the most well-known sport journalists in South America.

The World Cup begins in Brazil on June 12.
