The respect and love Diego received was extremely massive, especially in his hometown and country. Many believe a meeting with Maradona will definitely bring luck and Superstar, Carlos Tevez is among those do believe in that. Maradona returned to Tevez's Boca junior earlier this year and trust me he was treated like a king in something that sadly became his last visit. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

Maradona was a former Boca junior player between 1981-82 before leaving for Barcelona in 1982. The football scored a total of 28 goals in just 40 appearances before his move from the club.
He came back the same day Boca junior needed a luck to claim the league title from Rival plate. It was a must-win game for Boca Junior and needed to wait for a slip up from Rival plate ( they must not win). Carlitos knew he needed all the help he could get so he kissed Maradona right in front of over 49000 fans. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
But what happened? Did his plan work? Yes, it worked as Rival Plate failed to win the match while Boca Juniors went ahead to win courtesy of Carlos Tevez's only goal of the match, and Bocas were crowned champions. Diego Maradona was right there with them, it was his return to his home, La Bombonera. View pictures in App save up to 80% data. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
