Diego Maradona’s eldest son has said that he would like to see the No. 10 shirt retired.
The 34-year-old, who is Maradona’s eldest son,said he would like to see the shirt number retired at every club his father played for in honour of the Argentine, who sadly passed away last week after suffering a heart attack at his Buenos Aires home.
In an interview with Spanish newspaper MARCA via Mundo Deportivo, Sinagra called on the tribute to happen.
“In the teams where he played, I think so, including Barça. I have no doubt.” he said
Last week , Marseille manager Andre Villas-Boas also said FIFA should retire the No.10 shirt across world football as a tribute to Maradona.
Speaking after his side’s Champions League defeat against FC Porto, the former Spurs boss was passionate about his views.
“Maradona? Yes it is tough news,” he said. “I would like FIFA to retire the number 10 shirt in all competitions, for all teams.
“It would be the best homage we could do for him. He is an incredible loss for the world of football.”
Maradona won two Serie A titles with Napoli, wearing the iconic number 10 jersey. He also lifted the World Cup with Argentina in the same shirt number, creating a legacy in the meantime for club and country.
