Ronaldo, Messi pay tribute to Diego Armando Maradona who died on Nov. 25

World football stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have paid tribute to Argentina legend Diego Armando Maradona who died on Wednesday, 25 November 2020

 

Naples was rocked by news of the death of Diego Armando Maradona, who was venerated like a saint in the city.

People are still finding it hard to believe, as hundreds of fans gather in front of Maradona murals in the Spanish Quarters. All-out revelry won’t be easy, however, as Naples and the Campania region have been designated a high-risk, red zone since 13 November, which means people can only leave their homes for work, health or emergency purposes.

But in Naples, with Maradona’s status as a living legend, comparable only to the city’s patron saint, San Gennaro, anti-Covid restrictions will likely not be observed. “This 2020 is really the worst year ever”, one woman told Naples-based newspaper il Mattino.

“Today, football died’’, a Napoli fan told Sky News. “On a day like this I wanted to thank my parents who named me after him,” says a boy named Diego Maradona. To understand what Maradona meant in Naples, you just need to think that thousands of newborns in the nineties were named after the Argentinian player.
