The 1995/96 season is best remembered by the high-expected return to the club of 1986 World Cup champion Diego Maradona after 14 seasons. Several players were transferred in included Rosario Central left winger Kily González almost signed by Real Madrid, Darío Scotto, Claudio Paul Caniggia, Arturo Yorno and loans out ended for Raul Peralta, Roberto Cabañas y Blas Giunta.

On 3 December 1995 Mauricio Macri won his first Chairman's election with 7,000 votes and became new club President  In Torneo Apertura 1995 the squad finished on 4th spot after several rounds being leader losing the title over the last 5 matches.

Marzolini was sacked and Macri signed Carlos Bilardo during December 1995, and reinforced the squad with midfielders Juan Sebastián Verón from Estudiantes La Plata and José Horacio Basualdo. The Clausura is best remembered by the bizarre fact of 5 penalties missed by Maradona. The club finished on 5th spot with 33 points, seven below of champions Carlos Bianchi' Velez Sarsfield.

In 1996, Macri reinforced the club with several players: Diego Latorre, Julio César Toresani, Néstor Lorenzo, Sandro Guzmán, Facundo Sava, Sebastián Rambert, Gabriel Cedrés, Diego Cagna, Mauricio Pineda, Hugo Guerra, Silvio Carrario, Fernando Cáceres and Christian Dollberg. Owing to health issues club star Diego Maradona took another retirement. Meanwhile, forward Claudio Paul Caniggia suffered his mother' suicide in Henderson and announced his own retirement for the next Apertura Tournament. Also, left winger Kily González, Juan Sebastián Verón were transferred out to Europe. 17-yr-old playmaker and future club legend Juan Román Riquelme made his debut in this Apertura tournament.

In Apertura Tournament, the squad was a total failure sinking down to the middle of the table far below of champions River Plate prompting Bilardo to be sacked during December.

In spite of rumors about Miguel Ángel Brindisi as new trainer, the club appointed Héctor Veira as new head coach and reinforced the squad with goalkeeper Roberto Abbondanzieri (returned from a loan Rosario Central), midfielder Christian Traverso, Alfredo Berti and Pedro González. However, in Clausura the team just reached a miserable ninth spot despite Sergio "Manteca" Martinez scored 15 goals being the Clausura top striker. Finally, by July 13 Diego Maradona came back from his brief retirement and played against Racing  for the joy of Boca fans.
