Sergio “Wonder” Martinez He dedicated an emotional text to his compatriot, Diego Armando Maradona, soccer legend passed away this Wednesday.
The message for Maradona was published by Wonderful Martinez from your official account Instagram.
Eternally thank you. For sporting glory but, above all, because you made us all feel equally happy. That for me is enough. Reading some comments I feel moved by such crudeness and irrationality.
Who criticizes, blasphemes, who forgot or never even lived ‘something’ of what Diego hit the field, on the soccer field, he just didn’t understand Maradona He was able to cross all sports barriers and here I will say ‘my why’:
Why Diego he was able to ‘help’ my mother to forget our poverty, our lack, our lack of a plate on the table. That’s what Diego did. It made us forget how poor we were.
I am grateful. My mother, I am sure much more.
She more, much more than once, did not have a plate of food to put on the table. And there it was. Diego, so that we forget what we lacked.
So that we smile proudly, having it wrapped in the blue and white.
Our Diego. The one of the town.
The one who lived a million times, a million lives. The one who destroyed, one by one, those many lives that were granted to him.
Diego Armando Maradona. Thanks for everything Diego.
