Messi salutes Maradona.
Chinanews Client, November 30. Last week, after the death of football superstar Maradona, world football mourned the legendary departure in various ways.
On the evening of the 29th, Beijing time, in the 11th round of La Liga, Barcelona beat Osasuna 4:0.
After Messi scored, he paid tribute to the Argentine predecessor in a unique way.
In the 71st minute of the game, Trinco passed the ball and Messi crossed to the edge of the penalty area and shot into the net.
Later, he took off his jersey, revealing the old Newell boy's No. 10 jersey, and pointed his hands to the sky to pay tribute to Maradona.
