Lionel Messi has expressed sadness one year after the passing of Argentine football legend, Diego Maradona.
Messi discussed the anniversary in an exclusive interview with MARCA held earlier in the week.
“It seems like yesterday, I have a strange feeling,” Messi said.
“It feels incredible that a year has passed already and, without him here, Argentina are again champions [of the Copa America] after so many years.
“You always think that, at some point, you’ll see him again on TV, in an interview, or giving his opinion about something. But it’s been a long time since he passed away and it seems like yesterday.
“I’ll always remember the best memories we shared, those that I was lucky enough to have with him.”
Maradona died of a heart attack on November 25, 2020, at his Buenos Aires home in Argentina shortly after he underwent a brain surgery.
