In a statement made by the Ligue de Football Professionnel announced that they want to honor Maradona. A man who made millions of children dream and later became professional footballers themselves. A few of those players include Paris Saint-Germain’s Ángel Di María and Leandro Paredes.
The capital club tweeted a photo of the entire squad holding the Argentina flag and National Team kit to honor Maradona. A few players commented in a video that Les Parisiens also released onto their social media outlets on what the Argentine footballer meant to their life.
