¡Hola a todos los amantes del fútbol! - Hello to all soccer lovers!
Yesterday, Wednesday, November 25, 2020, an idol and icon in world soccer, the great "fuzz" and "onion", Diego Armando Maradona Franco, of Argentine nationality, died. He said goodbye to 60 years of age, leaving in the hearts of many friends and teammates an indelible pain that will be difficult to assimilate, especially for his family, who mourn the death of the Argentinean star.
Maradona, died in his native Argentina, after suffering a cardiorespiratory arrest, previously, he had undergone a head operation, being an improvement for Diego in terms of health. Unfortunately, today the information about the death of the most brilliant player in soccer is known, overflowing his opponents and showing his luxuries in training. Without a doubt, this news and with the one of the ex-basketball player, Kobe Bryant, on January 26th of this year, have been the saddest "goodbye" for all of us who day by day observe these two stars.
The D10S of Argentina, will be remembered for its dexterity, dribbling, skill, comradeship, dedication, attitude, galllardia in games dicifil and love of colors of the Albiceleste team. He is, was and will always be a king on the field, demonstrating in difficult plays, that for him there were no limits and many obstacles to leave his rival watered.
His first step in soccer, was made known in 1976 in the month of October, when he wore the colors of Argentinos Juniors with only 15 years of age, making his official debut in the first category of Argentine Football with a defeat against Talleres by a score of 1 for 0. However, only one month was enough for "pelusa" to score his first two goals with the first team, in a magical afternoon, where he beat San Lorenzo de Mar del Plata. After having surprised his own and strangers, Maradona, continued leaving spectacular marks with Argentinos Juniors, when he became the top scorer of the Metropolitan 1978, 79, 80 and National 1979 and 80 tournaments.
In 1981, Diego Armando Maradona, would be loaned to Boca Juniors for a year and a half, where the club reserved the option to buy the Argentinean footballer. In addition, he had several options in teams like America de Cali and River Plate, but for him, his team unquestionably of the economic situation that was going through was the "Xeneize". Diego, won the affection of the fans with his dribbling and unbalance in each one of the matches, standing out for his reading of the game, attitude and capacity to face decisive commitments, like for example: on April 10th, in which Boca Juniors defeated River Plate 3-0 in the superclassic, where the main figure was nothing more and nothing less than Maradona, scoring a great goal, leaving out of the way Fillol and Tarantini, with an enormous dexterity. To finish a successful cycle, Maradona, celebrated the championship of the Metropolitan Tournament of 1981, and later, concluded his stay on February 6 in his last game against River Plate.
Then, in 1982, a super talented player with an incredible quality arrived to the "Blaugranas" ranks, this without a doubt, is Diego Armando Maradona, who arrived to the Barcelona Football Club of Spain, with the satisfaction of being able to make a great season with the Spanish team, that as if it was not enough, had as technical director the German Udo Lattek, who made Diego's debut on August 3, 1982 against the German team, SV Meppen. In his first matches, he left a good impression, although the results did not accompany him. Sadly, in the 1983 campaign, injuries played a nasty trick on "fluff", where he would be retired on a stretcher due to a serious injury to the ankle of his broken left leg, that is, a fracture of the external malleolus and ligament. After a few months, he did his bit with FC Barcelona, scoring 11 goals in 16 games played.
His time with Napoli (1984-92), Seville (1992-93) and Newell's Old Boys (1993-94) were for him a synonym of struggle and effort, more than anything with the Italian team, where he won the UEFA Cup and two (2) scudettos, for that matter, take the team to the top and position itself among the first of the Seria A of Italiana for several years, winning the hearts of the blue fans forever, who continue to cry and give a well-deserved tribute to Maradona, the Great number 10 of Argentina. There are many clubs that have spoken on Twitter about the death of Maradona, which for me gives me to understand the feeling and the soccer value that Cebollita left in the teams where he was.

With the national team of Argentina, Diego Armando Maradona, he is remembered for the famous hand of God and the run from the middle of the field against England in the Quarterfinals, in what would be the most remembered moment of his career as a professional footballer, leaving the English strewn out like a doll. The 1986 World Cup in Mexico was the consecration of Diego as a champion, where he managed to score two goals against Belgium in the semifinal and later Argentina beat Germany 3 times 2 in the final. El pibe de oro, led Argentina's attacker in every match, demonstrating his skill and ability with the ball, where the narrator Victor Hugo Morales was surprised with what Maradona was doing with the rivals.

¿Y cómo le fue dirigiendo?
And how did it go?
His retirement was announced at the age of 37. Then, in 1994 Maradona had his first battle of fire as a coach, after directing Mandiyú of Argentina, a year later he was hired by Racing Club and finally took the reins of the Argentinean national team, getting a ticket to the World Cup in South Africa 2010, where he fell in the Quarterfinals at the hands of Germany, with a score of 4 goals for 0, in what would be the end of a regular cycle as a strega of the Albiceleste. Similarly, between 2011-12 he joined his fourth team as coach, directing Al-Wasl of the United Arab Emirates, then in the 2017-18 season he again directed a team from the United Arab Emirates, this time, the club of Al-Fujairah, where he only directed in 11 games. His journey as technical director was not as good as we might say, so he decided to go to Mexican Soccer to direct Dorados de Sinaloa in the 2018-19 season, winning over Mexican fans with his emotional and captivating words of the great "lint". Finally, in 2020, Gimnasia de La Plata hired Diego as strategist, so that players would feel an extra support from a soccer player who gave his all for the national team and in every club where he left a mark. In this way, he concluded his career as a Mister, with a balance of almost 60% of effectiveness in the matches.
