The Argentine legend mourns the other Argentine legend… The tribute of Lionel Messi was particularly expected after the announcement of the death of Diego Maradona, Wednesday afternoon, at the age of 60, of a heart attack.
“A very sad day for all Argentines and for football. He leaves us but does not leave, because Diego is eternal. I keep in mind all the beautiful moments I spent with him and I take this opportunity to send my condolences to all his family and friends”, Launched Messi on his Instagram, posting a photo where we see the two Ten all smiles.
The five-time Ballon d’Or obviously knows very well “El Pibe de Oro”, who was his coach with Abiceleste at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa (elimination in the quarterfinals against Germany, 4-0 ).
Cristiano Ronaldo, meanwhile, said:goodbye to a friend“And a”an eternal genius“. And to add on his social networks: “A unique magician. He leaves too early, but leaves a limitless legacy and a void that will never be filled. Rest in peace, crack. We will never forget you”.
