On Thursday, the football world, especially in Naples, will once again take a break: the death of the oversized Diego Armando Maradona will be the first time. Perhaps that is why the SSC will play in the Europa League on Wednesday (4.30 p.m. LIVE! Kicker), when the Partenopei will be challenged at Spartak Moscow.
His jersey, which now adorns the effigy of Maradona, is just one of many tributes – the “Divine” is also making all kinds of headlines for his “Ascension”. “I feel that this day is not for honors, not for celebrations,” said Dalma, Diego’s daughter, but between many tributes, as in her lifetime accusations of all kinds are mixed.

Diego Maradona – Between genius and madness
on the subject
- On October 20, 1976, at the age of 15, he made his debut with the Argentinos Juniors, and in 1986 he became world champion with Argentina. Naples, which he bought back with two championships, paid homage to him like a saint.
- He was a genius in the field; many believed in supernatural powers when they saw him play. Outside the square, fame overwhelmed him.
- He passed away on November 25, 2020 at the age of 60. It’s not just the football world that mourns a legend.
The legacy – not that of football – is disputed, the legal proceedings against his doctor are still in full swing. Maradona herself is accused of rape on the first anniversary of the death of a former lover, and other plaintiffs of her paternity.
It seems what the girls from their first marriage would actually want is just not to calm down about the late football genius, who still receives a hearty tribute. On December 14, in Saudi Arabia, the former clubs of Maradona, FC Barcelona and Boca Juniors, organize a commemorative match, among others Amazon Prime and Spotify are currently offering new content on the life and death of the 1986 world champion.
Other things will also be offered in mid-December, very personal from the life of Diego Armando. If you want and have the financial means, you can buy apartments, cars, jerseys, a Bible or a kettle for an immortal who was only 60 years old.
