"

I am among those who consider Diego the greatest footballer of all time:

there is a before and after Maradona, a before and after the crack of the prodigious left-hander; of the incomparable artist," wrote the Bolivarian leader.


Already in political matters, Maduro remembered him as "a rebel, irreverent, but above all a genuine patriot, an

unyielding combatant for the cause of the unity of the Great Homeland."

He added: "I want to evoke Diego who

became one of the great gravediggers of the FTAA

there in Mar del Plata in November 2005: there he was, together with our Eternal Commander, demonstrating his status as a champion of dignity."

Maduro made reference to the IV Summit of Presidents of America that took place in November 2005 in Mar del Plata.

That time then Venezuelan president, Hugo Chávez, closed the meeting with the remembered phrase:

"FTAA, FTAA, to hell".

"The Golden Boy of America deservedly earned the love of our peoples. Diego not only leaves us an extraordinary football legacy:

our Pelusa embodies a human and political legacy as luminous as it is imperishable,

" Maduro continued in the letter.

And he closed: "I speak of Diego de los Pueblos, Diego loyal to his origins, Diego of children, Diego who will live in us and in us forever: the son of Fidel (Castro), the brother of Hugo and Evo , my brother. The Diego who did not hide his infinite love for Venezuela,

the Diego who was an irreducible defender of the Bolivarian Revolution, the proud Chavista ".
