Messi paid a surprise tribute to honor Maradona

Antoine Griezmann and Philippe Coutinho commented on a touching homage to Diego Maradona by Lionel Messi.

On Sunday a tribute to Diego Maradona was paid by Lionel Messi with a goal celebration that came as a ‘beautiful surprise’ to his Barcelona team-mates.

Messi stripped his Barca shirt to reveal a Newell’s Old Boys jersey emblazoned with Maradona’s iconic number 10 after scoring his side’s fourth goal in the 4-0 victory over Osasuna.

In honour of his compatriot, who spent a season at Newell’s, the club where Messi started his youth career, he then pointedly saluted the sky.

Later, they mentioned how they were not sure of what Messi was doing at Camp Nou, where Maradona played from 1982 to 1984, on a moving day.

“We lost Maradona, a global idol, we all miss him,” Coutinho said.

“We didn’t know what Messi had prepared to honour Maradona,” added Griezmann. “It was a beautiful surprise.”

Newell’s responded through their English Twitter account, saying: “It’s all about number 10. The best player in the world and his tribute to #D10S.”
