The Argentina legend was among the star names of past and present who featured in the Game for Peace in Rome on Wednesday evening.
But despite it being a light-hearted event, Maradona took umbrage in an incident off the ball with Veron.
The pair continued their spat after the half-time whistle, while Maradona had to be physically restrained from confronting Veron as they made their way to the dressing room.
‘I don’t f**k you about, I tell you straight to your face idiot,’ Maradona told Veron in the heated exchange.
