Lionel Messi explains tribute to Diego Maradona

In an exclusive interview with TyC Sports, Lionel Messi discussed his tribute to Diego Maradona after the legendary footballer’s death on 25 November 2020.

“It was the night before and I was with Antonela, lying down and I was telling her, ‘I have to do something for Diego’. I have a museum with trophies, shirts… And I’m going to see what’s there, I went to look for a national team shirt or something. I went upstairs and there’s a little door that’s always closed, where we put things. And it was open and there was a chair, and on top was the number 10 Newell’s shirt. I went in and saw it. That door is always closed and I don’t know what it was really doing there, I didn’t even remember I had it. And I saw it like that and I said, ‘that’s it’. It was unbelievable. It was about 11 o’clock at night. It seems incredible.”
