PSG Players Pay Tribute To The Late Diego Maradona

Football fans around the world are in mourning on Wednesday after hearing the news out of Argentina that Diego Maradona has passed away at the age of 60 after suffering a heart attack.

Maradona emerged over his 20-plus year career as one of the greatest to ever play the game. From the triumph at the 1986 World Cup to multiple iconic goals, Maradona left behind memories that will be cherished by football fans forever.

Several Paris Saint-Germain players poured out tributes on social media after news had emerged of Maradona’s passing.

PSG’s official website also released a lengthy piece on Maradona which part of it read: “In his inspirations as much as in his excesses, Diego Maradona will have embodied the beauty and love of his sport. So much so that all football fans, on all continents, have the impression of having lost one of their own.”

Maradona did not have many encounters against PSG over his lengthy career. He did, however, play in a friendly fixture against PSG in 1982 while he was with FC Barcelona.

There are not many players in the history of the game who have accomplished as much as Maradona did over his respective career. He is one who will be always be remembered as one of the greatest and most iconic players to ever play this sport.
