Remembering Diego Maradona: football legend dies aged 60

Diego Maradona, widely regarded as one of the greatest football players of all time, has died at the age of 60. Maradona was a uniquely gifted player with a bewitching style that was all his own. He rose from the streets of Buenos Aires to reach the pinnacle of his sport leading Argentina to World Cup glory in 1986 and scoring the infamous ‘Hand of God’ goal along the way. Maradona played for Boca Juniors, Barcelona and Napoli in a storied club career, and later managed Argentina at the 2010 World Cup.

Declaring three days of national mourning, Alberto Fernández, the president of Argentina, said: ‘You took us to the top of the world. You made us immensely happy. You were the greatest of them all’.

    We live in a remote location, internet reach our main population only after the year 2000. If you go back to the 80's and early 90's, you will see lots of footwears( chappals, slippers etc) outside the doors of few household that affords a television. And yet we know Maradona. We not only know his name, he was the reason we cherished the number 10, he was the reason Argentina was and is till date no.1 in our hearts( no offence to other nations). He was the trend setter in our approach on football. He was great even to those who never saw him play back then many did not afford to watch televisions. He was our childhood that we shared to younger generations. Football will never be football over here if not for Maradona. And his death hit us so hard that we called asking if what we hear is true. But its true. Goodbye genius, Goodbye football's pride and our deepest condolences to the Argentines and football fans all over the world. Though his earthly body is not with us anymore, he will always be in our hearts and his legacy will be forever. R.I.P Diego.
