Lionel Messi Mourns Diego Maradona’s Tribute


Messi is often considered to be the true heir to Maradona’s throne at both Barcelona and in the Argentina football. Both players play identical football and are popular for their vision, passing, ball control and dribbling skills.

Maradona captained Argentina to the World Cup title in 1986 scoring perhaps the greatest goal in football in that tournament. It was also here that he scored his infamous ‘Hand of God’ goal for Argentina. Maradona was also a success story in club football and numerous trophies with each club he played for. His best spell, however, came at Napoli, who he joined from Barcelona in 1984 and led the club to their first-ever Serie A title in 1987. Maradona also led Napoli to a third Serie A title in 1990 among other titles. Rest in Peace Legend!
