Hernan Crespo was brought to tears when paying an emotional tribute to Diego Maradona.

Following the demise of Diego Maradona, Hernan Crespo was in tears, and there was a call to name an airport after the late hero of Argentina.

The late Argentine World Cup winner’s boyhood hero called for an airport to be named after the superstar.

He told ESPN: “What Diego generated in me as a child, a teenager, and after I grew up, as a professional … he has a lot to do with all of this.”

“These have been two very difficult days. It is very difficult to train, talk to the boys, find words. We will try to honor him in the best way, which is by playing soccer, respecting his spirit of freedom, fun, and a lot of commitment to where he is. We will try to do that.”

“Everyone has their own things, their experiences. I am from the golden generation. I lived it, dreamed it, and knew it. I am grateful to live for that.”

Crespo’s voice was full of emotion as he added: “The pain that I have in my soul cannot be explained.”

Maradona grew up as a hero with Ricardo Enrique Bochini and the pair later starred for Argentina together.

Bochini, 66, said that naming Argentina’s largest airport, the Ministro Pistarini International Airport, after Maradona will be a fitting tribute.

“The Argentine airport should be Diego Armando Maradona,” Bochini said on TyC Sports.

“Maradona made Argentina known across the world. While we are a beautiful country, we know that World Cups are always seen all over the world and many know Argentina from Maradona.”

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
