Barcelona, Spain, through its official account on Twitter, published today, Monday, a picture of its former star, Argentine Lionel Messi, in the shirt of his late compatriot, the legend, Diego Armando Maradona.
The Catalan team attached the photo with the words: “One year has passed since Lionel’s emotional tribute to Diego.”
Messi had celebrated his goal against Osasuna in the league last season, by wearing the Argentine Newell’s Old Boys shirt, which Maradona played with in his last stop with football, the same team in which Messi started his career.
Maradona passed away a few days before that match at the age of 60, after suffering a heart attack.
It is noteworthy that Messi moved to the ranks of Paris Saint-Germain on a free deal during the last summer transfers.
