The Argentine star died in his country the wednesday 25th past
True, the Goddess of Fortune sometimes brings them: On November 25, 2005, the Northern Irishman, George Best, the 5th Beatles beetle, passed away. November 25, 2016 the Cuban, Fidel Castro a close friend of Diego Maradona. And on November 25, 2020, Diego Maradona, one of the top footballers who has known world football since its inception!
So now the three of them up there: the fifth member of the Beatles will put the drinks, «El Comandante» the cigars and «El Pibe d’oro» everything else needed for the party, which will spoil people! Not just a great ball artist left. A petite Atlas left, lifting on his back, putting against his belly and his thick thighs, a group, a city, a homeland, a whole planet. He picked him up and played him like a rosary on his magic left foot!
The «hand of God» therefore proved to be stronger than the heart of Diego, who stopped beating on the morning of Wednesday, November 25 at his home in San Andre, Tigre, where he had just moved a few days ago.
Diego yes he was a prodigal son, no talking. There was a shocking spelling in the living room, a counter-argument to all sorts of protocols and the epitome of what is called «politically correct».
They did not, however, pretend to be seen by the people. Good or bad, saint or groom, he was himself. It was Diego Armando Maradona, the one and only.
On June 22, 1986 at the «Estadio Azteca» in Mexico City, before sending the unfortunate Peter Shilton to collect the ball from his pulsating nets, he had managed to dribble the entire defense of the embarrassed English (Bobby Moore, etc.) !
In that spectacular slalom he had, I immediately took out of his spasmodic and handed out to each of the swindlers found in his diava, English and a box of dramamines for the dizziness that caused them to vomit!
It was then that Salvador Dali was bitterly denied, who once said that «you should not be afraid of perfection, because you will simply never reach it».
I dare say that this (football) perfection, Maradona reached and surpassed!
Too bad he denied another buzzword of the eccentric artist, who had also said that «I do not need to take drugs, because I am a drug by myself».
Now, after 34 years, when like another god-player he went to dribble death again, but ate a red card, all the subjects of His Majesty feel like burying our youth…
Clarin in Spanish means trumpet
From the moment this Argentine newspaper took out and distributed the sad and unwanted exclusivity throughout the universe, Maradona’s trumpet stopped ringing.
Maradona joined the Italian Southern team on July 5, 1984, in front of 75,000 fans adoring him in San Paolo during his presentation. The 1986-1987 season led the Partenopei to win their only Serie A title.
Now shut up with a creepy and bizarre requiem.
Meanwhile, three days of mourning have been declared in Argentina by the government. His body will be transported to Casa Rosada. His funeral will take place in the same chapel, which was held 10 years ago the funeral of the former president of the country, Nestor Kirchnen.
«I was working with my chief of staff when I was told and I could not believe it, I’m devastated. It ‘s the worst news a fan of Argentinos Juniors can hear,» said Argentine President Alberto Fernandes. the grief «.Maradona’s body will be autopsied at the San Fernando Hospital morgue to confirm the cause of death.
The late Diego Maradona had also come to Greece, when on October 6, 1988 in the crowded Toumba he faced PAOK for the UEFA Cup and brought 1-1 with goals from Skartados and Careca.
That was when the «cements» fell. In fact, Diego, stunned by the pulse of the podium and already scared, was forced to change sides in the execution of a corner and admit in the end that «I have never encountered such an atmosphere in my life and I hope I will not meet again»!
Eight years later he kept it for us in Mani.
On June 21, 1994, in the maiden match of its history in the final phase of the World Cup, at «Foxboro» in Boston, the Greek national team fell in a tornado: we lost 4-0 to Argentina, with three goals by Batistuta and one by Maradona .
In the 60 ‘phase, when Maradona scores 3-0 against Antonis Minou, the camera zooms in on him and the image is really scary. He looked like he was in tears, only to be shown a little later that he was under the influence!
He later visited us as a friend. As they once said, «you are a friend, become a member»!
He appeared at the «Georgios Karaiskakis» stadium on January 16, 2005 (Olympiakos-Iraklis 1-0), when he was declared a member of «Thrylos».
That afternoon he lifted the shirt with the number 10, offered to him by Socrates Kokkalis, shouted «Long live Greece, long live Olympiacos» and enjoyed the slogan of the spectators.
«Maradona, you are crazy about the red jersey»!
Then Diego had ordered that he would return for the fiesta of winning the title and he kept his promise with a delay of one year: on May 14, 2006 again in Neo Faliro (Olympiakos-Ionikos 0-0), in fact then he already wore the red and white jersey and He played cards with Rivaldo and Castillo.
Diego Armando Maradona is no longer with us. He left for the eternal journey, struck by a heart attack that the rescuers did not have time to face when they arrived at his house. His complaint, as Clarin writes, is twofold:
First at his birthday on October 30, due to the coronation he could not see his daughters as well as his grandson, Benjamin (son of Sergio Aguero of Manchester City), while he could not spend enough time with his mother, Dalma (better known as Donna Tota).
The international press
The international press, as is logical, dedicates its front pages to the figure of the Argentine legend, calling him, among others, «God», «Eternal» and «Immortal».
OLE: «1960 – infinity» , GAZZETTA DELLO SPORT «I have seen Maradona» , CORRIERE DELLO SPORT «Diego Lives» MUNDO DEPORTIVO «AD10S» , THE TIMES «Mourning for the death of Maradona»
Only the English newspapers do not forget the «hand of God» in the famous quarterfinal between Argentina and England in the 1986 World Cup, in Mexico.
Among the praiseworthy comments, there are some not very decent descriptions for Maradona.
In particular, the Mirror reports that «Diego Maradona, a hero, a skunk, a thief and a genius died at the age of 60».
On the other hand, the Daily Star has a photo from the phase with Maradona’s hand against England, writing: «Where was the VAR when we needed it most?» the fact on their front pages.
Napoli described the death of Diego Maradona as an «irreparable blow for the club, but also for the whole city». «We are in mourning,» said club spokesman Nicolas Lombardo, adding: «We feel like a boxer who was beaten and knocked out. We are shocked. «
Lionel Messi said goodbye on social media to Diego Maradona, who passed away. «He leaves us, but he does not leave because Diego is eternal.»Diego you are one and only. Thank you for the beautiful moments you gave us. We will never forget you».
