Messi pays tribute to Maradona on anniversary of his death

Paris Saint-Germain superstar, Lionel Messi, has said that it feels incredible that a year has passed already without Argentina legend, Diego Maradona.

Messi said this while remembering Maradona on the anniversary of his death on Thursday, Nov 25, 2021.

Maradona died of a heart attack on November 25, 2020, at his Buenos Aires home in Argentina.

The iconic footballer, who was captain when his country won the 1986 World Cup, had surgery on the brain blood clot earlier in November, 2020.

Maradona, who played for Barcelona and Napoli, scored 34 goals in 91 appearances for Argentina and was featured in four World Cups.

“It seems like yesterday, I have a strange feeling,” Messi told MARCA.

“It feels incredible that a year has passed already and, without him [Diego Maradona] here, Argentina are again champions [of the Copa America] after so many years.

“You always think that, at some point, you will see him again on TV, in an interview, or giving his opinion about something. But it has been a long time since he passed away and it seems like yesterday.

“I will always remember the best memories we shared, those that I was lucky enough to have with him.”
