One of the best tributes to Diego Maradona did Carlos Tevez last Wednesday, when he showed a remembered shirt that the star gave him to celebrate the winning goal of Boca in the Liberators cup. But the farewell continued this Thursday night with a moving post on social networks, where he also responded Dalma, one of the daughters of Ten.
“Any tribute that I can do to you will always do a small thing for how big you are“Carlitos began on his Instagram account by showing the photo of the celebration in Brazil, where he exhibited a xeneize jacket that Maradona wore in 1981, when he was crowned in the Metropolitan tournament.
“This photo reflects that I still do not fall that you are no longer with us. I point to the sky but my gaze is down, “added the captain, a day after the 1-0 win against Inter in Porto Alegre.
“But I also know that wherever you are you give me strength to continue. I do not know if I can be up to the task but of one thing I am sure: I will leave my heart to make you happy !!! I miss you friend“, closed the message meaning.
The reactions of his companions were not long in coming. Wanchope Abila, one of Carlitos’s closest and faithful friend, commented: “Crack”. And the Colombian also joined Edwin cardona: “Idol”. Daniel Osvaldo, for his part, he wrote: “I love you friend. You always understand everything.”
Hours before publication, Dalma Maradona had thanked Apache for remembering his father who died on November 25. “Thanks for everything. You are family”, The young woman returned with the same image that the forward xeneize later added to her account.
Tevez, who was present at the intimate wake, was one of the most affected on campus. He did not play Sunday against Newell’s, affected by the loss of his idol, but reappeared on Wednesday at the Beira Rio to pay tribute to him in the best way: goal and victory in the first leg of the round of 16.
“I drove him crazy to give me the 81 jersey. First he gave me the 1995 Olan, which I also have. And after 81, which for me is the best. I decided to use it as a tribute to Diego. They are sensations that I never thought I had, “Tevez said after the game.
Speaking to TyC Sports, he added: “I had decided to use the 81. When I put it on, something entered my body that I cannot explain. The story. I came out calm because I knew I was going to score a goal. Diego is unique. Is God. I knew that I was going to stay and score a goal“.
Carlitos thus emulated Lionel Messi, which in Spain had shown the shirt the Ten wore at Newell’s in 1993. It was when the Rosario scored the fourth goal for Barcelona in the defeat of Osasuna and had an exciting gesture that traveled the world.
