The relationship between Martín Palermo and Diego Maradona was always very special. The last great memory is in the 2010 World Cup, where the forward was called up and had the pleasure of scoring a goal for Greece. Before he had scored a goal against Peru to get closer to qualifying, on an unforgettable night for the popcorn celebration of the historic 10.
The two are emblems of Argentine soccer, Boca idols and they always had affection. Now, a few days after the first anniversary of Diego’s death, Palermo broke down remembering it.
“It is something that I cannot accept. I have no words to explain what Diego is to me. That’s all. I think it’s seeing him in a photo and it hurts my soul. It is an immense pain, because I am so sentimental. You name me Diego and it’s like a part of me is missing, as well as when my son left, and they are two things that I miss a lot. Of the sentimental thing I always have it present. My expression is all I can answer you, “he declared in a dialogue with TNT Sports.
Few remember that Maradona was the key man for Palermo to sign in Boca and then he ended up becoming one of the great idols in the club’s history. A love that will be eternal.
