Maradona left our world a week ago, at the age of 60, after suffering a heart attack.
Pele published, through his account on “Instagram,” a picture of his collection with Maradona, and wrote on it: “Today has passed 7 days since you left, many people loved our comparison throughout their lives, I was a genius, fascinated the world, a magician and the ball between your feet, a true legend, but above all, For me, you’ll always be a great friend, with a big heart. ”
He added, “Today, I know the world would be a lot better if we could compare each other less and start liking each other more, so I would say you are not comparing.”
And Pele continued: “Your path was distinguished by honesty, and in your unique and special way, you taught us that we have to love and say (I love you) a lot, your quick departure did not allow me to tell you that, so I will only write: (I love you, Diego).”
He continued: “My great friend, thank you very much for our entire journey; one day, in heaven, we will play together on the same team, and this will be the first time I have raised my fist in the air victorious on the field without celebrating a goal.”
Pele concluded, “It would be because I can finally hug you again.”
