Diego Maradona did not show himself as a person very close to religion, but after he died a priest appeared who said he was the last one Diego Maradona confessed to. After Maradona's death, there were many doubts about his health and how he was in his last days, but the priest said what many people needed to hear.
The priest of the La Plata church was invited by Diego Maradona to bless the stadium of his new gymnastics club. When he arrived and finished doing his work at the stadium, Diego Maradona surprised him and asked him to confess. The priest accepted very kindly and that's when he was surprised by what Diego Maradona asked him and told him.
Diego Maradona all he wanted was peace according to the priest and that is why he asked him for a special blessing for the remainder of his life. The priest was surprised that Diego Maradona asked him these things since he believed that he was not close to religion. After he blessed him, they talked for a while.
In that talk between the priest and Diego Maradona, many things were discussed, but the priest confessed that Diego Mardona regretted all the mistakes he had made and that he was very aware that he had made a lot of mistakes. Finally Diego Maradona ended the talk with the priest by telling him that even though he was not an example to anyone, he knew that he had done good things too.
