Sporting world pays tribute to former Barcelona and Sevilla player Maradona

Written by on November 25, 2020

Tributes have been paid from across the Spanish sporting world to former Barcelona FC football player Diego Maradona, who died of a heart attack yesterday.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest soccer players of all time before drug and alcohol addiction marred his career, Maradona died at his home in Argentina after suffering a heart attack, his lawyer said.

Maradona netted an incredible 38 goals in 58 appearances for Barcelona, whom he joined in 1982, before moving to Napoli in 1984.

He also had a one-season stint at Sevilla after leaving Napoli.

A minute’s silence will be observed ahead of todays Europa League matches as a tribute to the sportsman.
