Lionel Messi paid tribute to Maradona, who died on 25 November, by taking off his Barca T-shirt with the number 10 and had Newell Old Boys T-shirt under it.
The Argentine received a warning for the same.
The idea of canceling the yellow card to Lionel Messi for a gesture in memory of Diego Maradona was supported by Barcelona’s head coach Ronald Koeman.
“We know the rules, so he took off his shirt and got a yellow one. But everyone understands why Messi did it. It is clear that I would cancel the yellow one, of course,” said Koeman to Marca.
