On Wednesday, November 25, 2020, news revolutionized the world: at age 60, and for reasons that are still being investigated, Diego Armando Maradona lost his life at his home in Tigre, Argentina, causing enormous pain in soccer fans, who consider him the best player of all time. And despite the fact that almost five months have passed since his death, his legacy continues to be more relevant than ever.
Last Sunday, twelve important clubs in Europe announced the creation of the Super League, a clearly elitist tournament that marks the difference between the "powerful" and the "poor". Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham from England, Atlético Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid from Spain and Milan, Juventus and Inter from Italy were the clubs that broke ties with UEFA and created their own tournament, which distributes more money in prizes since the US bank JP Morgan will take care of them.
With this panorama of rupture, the great question arises: What would Diego Maradona have said in this situation? Although at various times in history Maradona's relationship with FIFA and UEFA was not the best, before his death it had improved. For this reason, Maradona would have "planted" himself with the powerful teams that opened a new world sports map.
But not only for the simple reason of maintaining a good relationship with FIFA and UEFA, but also because Pelusa, despite having a great fortune, was always in solidarity with those who have the least. For example, in one of his last appearances, he asked for the tax on the great fortunes of Argentina, which he was willing to pay. And beyond that, at all times he took the side of the weak, so that there is greater equity in the world.
