Diego Maradona, the great Argentine legend, breathed his last on Wednesday night WIB (25/11). The sad news immediately shocked the football world, considering the great name of the Napoli legend.
According to information released by local media, the 60-year-old man died of a heart attack. This sad news is considered very surprising, because only a few days ago the legend returned to his house after undergoing surgery.
Not only that, even on 30 October, Diego Maradona also had a chance to celebrate his 60th anniversary in a simple way. In the event, Maradona also expressed his hopes.
Who would have thought, this wish / wish would be the last time for Maradona before his last breath last Wednesday.
So, what is the legend’s final wish or wish? Not about football, Maradona just wants the Corona Virus to quickly disappear from the face of the earth, so that people who are entangled in economic problems can live as usual again.
“I don’t want anything. I just want the coronavirus to disappear from this world. I want him to leave everyone in peace, especially countries where people and children are so poor they can’t even defend themselves. . ”
“I hope that here in Argentina, as in many countries in other parts of the world, the virus of hunger and lack of work that devours people’s dignity can also be defeated,” Maradona told Il Corriere dello Sport.
No one thought that this was Diego Maradona’s last wish or wish before he died. His departure has certainly left grief for football as a whole.
Naturally, when he was still active, Maradona was known as the world’s best player. The most memorable moment was when he led Argentina to win the 1986 World Cup.
He is also known as a controversial figure, having scored with his hands in the 1986 World Cup quarter-final against England.
But apart from that, many admit that Maradona is one of the best players in football history. His name is also juxtaposed with the great Brazilian legend, Pele.
