Last night, Boca Juniors won a very special match against Newell’s Old Boys (2-0) in the Coupe de la Ligue (renamed Diego Armando Maradona Cup). The legendary Argentinian number 10 had played at Boca (1981-1982) but also at Newell’s (1993-1995). During the match, the locals wore the name Maradona on the back of their shirts, while their opponents wore the number 10 on the chest. Even the referee wore a t-shirt that read “Thank you Diego”.
The emotion of his daughter
The players gathered in front of an Argentina team jersey, flocked with the name of El Pibe de Oro, and reserved a standing ovation for Dalma Maradona, the daughter of the legend present in a lodge of the Bombonera, who couldn’t contain her tears.
