Messi remembers Maradona on the anniversary of his death

Messi remembers Maradona on the anniversary of his death

Few people in football were as affected by Diego Maradona‘s death in 2020 than Lionel Messi. The Paris Saint-Germain star has spent his career being compared with his former Argentina coach, and was moved when the news broke of his passing on November 25, 2020.

The then-captain of Barcelona paid his own personal tribute to the 1986 World Cup winner by scoring a goal in the Catalans’ next match and removing his shirt to reveal one of Newell’s Old Boys with the No.10 beneath. He also shared a post on Instagram.

Now, one year on, Messi discussed the anniversary in an exclusive interview with MARCA held earlier in the week.

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

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

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

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