November 30 Last week, after the death of football superstar Maradona, the world football world commemorated the legend’s departure in various ways. On the evening of the 29th Beijing time, Barcelona defeated Osasuna 4-0 in the 11th round of La Liga. After Messi scored, he paid tribute to the Argentine elder in a unique way.
In the 71st minute of the game, Trinkow passed the ball, and Messi crossed to the edge of the penalty area and shot into the net. He then took off his jersey, exposed the No. 10 jersey of the old Newell boy, and pointed his hands at the sky to pay tribute to Maradona.
Argentine club Newell Old Boys is a team that Maradona once played for, and Messi also played for the team as a child.
After the game, Messi updated his personal social media and posted pictures of Maradona wearing Newell’s old boy’s jersey, with the caption: Farewell, Diego.
Messi has always been regarded as the successor to Maradona. Macy’s father once said that his son grew up watching Maradona’s videos. During Lao Ma’s coaching of the Argentine national team, he took good care of Messi.
After Maradona’s death, Messi wrote emotionally on social media: “It’s a very sad day for all Argentines and football players. He left us, but he did not leave, because Diego is eternal.”
