Diego Maradona celebrates this Thursday, November 25, one year of death. However, despite the fact that he is not physically present, his memories still live in the memory of the Argentines and especially in Lionel Messi. The ‘Pulga’ paid tribute to ‘Pelusa’ with an emotional publication.

On his Instagram account, the PSG forward uploaded his photo with the ‘Albiceleste’ shirt and in the middle appears the image of the ‘Pibe de oro’ with his year of birth (1960) and the symbol of infinity. "Eternal, Diego," wrote the player.

In addition, Lionel Messi also remembered Maradona during an interview he gave to Marca. "It seems incredible that a year has already passed and it also seems on purpose that just when he is not here, Argentina after so many years is once again champion," he revealed.

"The truth is that the feeling is strange, it's like not believing. Always thinking that at some point you are going to see it on TV, in an interview or giving your opinion about something. A long time passed and it seems that it was yesterday when it happened”, indicated.
