Diego Armando Maradona died at his 60 years in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on November 25, a date that will be remembered forever. The idol was experiencing some health difficulties and suffered a heart attack that ended with his life. Thousands of people were reunited to salute him and say goodbye.

Almost every club in the world decided to pay tribute to Maradona with different actions. Juventus chose to post a goal on social media that the legend scored against them with Napoli and made a minute of silence and stopped their game against Empoli to clap him at the 10 minutes of the match.

But Alejo Oscar considered that such homage was not enough. He is an ex Argentinian soccer player who worked scouting in Sweden for Juventus, between other clubs. After seeing what the club did with Maradona and considering it not enough, he decided to resign.

Oscar cleared that Maradona inspired his professional career and that it was a lack of respect what Juventus did to remember him. He also said that the resignation will make him lose economically and that such a decision was probably not the same for his career, but that he needed to do it that way.
