Manchester City and Argentine striker, Sergio Aguero has paid tribute to his former father-in-law Diego Maradona following his tragic death on Wednesday, November 25th.
The Argentina icon died in his sleep after suffering heart failure, only two weeks after leaving the hospital following surgery to remove a blood clot on his brain. He was 60.
Aguero, after his involvement against Olympiacos in the Champions League on Wednesday night, November 35, paid tribute to Diego Maradona, who was his son’s grandfather.
Alongside a picture of the pair embracing and Maradona celebrating with the World Cup in 1986, Aguero captioned his Twitter post: ‘We are never going to forget you. You will always be with us. #GraciasDiego RIP.’
He was married to Gianinna Maradona, the youngest daughter of the former Argentine footballer, who was present at the birth of the couple’s son Benjamin in 2009.
The couple separated in 2012 with Aguero and Maradona reportedly falling out. The football legend reportedly branded the striker a ‘wimp’ when his marriage to his daughter ended.
