Everyone in sports sent their condolences to Maradona's family, but Pele said goodbye in a very particular way that moved everyone. Pele and Maradona were undoubtedly two of the greatest players in all of history.

Diego Maradona was in very poor health and after suffering a respiratory arrest he died. This news hit the whole world very hard and in Argentina they have already decreed 3 days of national mourning. Maradona was a hero for the Argentine people and an idol for most of the soccer-loving people. That's why Pele remembered it in the following way.

"Someday we will kick a ball in the sky together Diego", those were the words that the greatest idol of Brazil used to say goodbye to Diego Armando Maradona. Pele also added that it is very difficult to lose a friend the way Maradona passed away. Like many people, Pele thinks that Maradona's environment could have cared for him more than it did.

Talking about Pele and Maradona is talking about two of the most famous people in world history and not just about football. Although they had their differences at times, both proved to be great friends and have a lot of respect for each other. The death of Maradona was a very hard blow for Pele who turned 80 less than a month ago.
