“I did not have the privilege of seeing him play, but I relived together with my family all his plays and goals, the way he worked on the court.

“I invite you to let yourself be carried away by the passion, joy and glory that Maradona made us feel at some point. Through my typical costume, let’s celebrate the player on the pitch and not the man at home”
