Try as he might, PSV's big new signing Hirving Lozano could not grab all the attention in their Eredivisie opening day win over AZ.

The 23-year-old Mexico international impressed with an equalising goal and some quick, dangerous attacks in the 3-2 victory.

But there was a bigger presence in the Philips Stadion who proved quite a distraction from the match, as footballing icon Diego Maradona was in attendance.

The Argentine hero is in Netherlands for a training camp with his FC Fujairah side and made headlines earlier in the week when he stopped into a shop for a snack.

Maradona was welcomed into the Ronald Koeman Lounge at PSV and was presented by Dutch legend Ruud Gullit with a PSV jersey with his name on it.

The 1986 World Cup winner seemed to be enjoying the five-goal encounter as he cheered from the stand and even smoked a cigar.
