Diego Maradona's Eldest Son Asks Lionel Messi To Give Up The Number 10 Shirt

Diego Maradona's Eldest Son Asks Lionel Messi To Give Up The Number 10 Shirt

Diego Maradona's son Diego Armando Maradona Sinagra wants Lionel Messi to give up the number 10 shirt at Barcelona as a tribute to his late father.

The 34-year-old, who is Maradona's eldest son, would also 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.

During his time at Napoli, Maradona won two Serie A titles 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.

Sinagra's comments come just days after Marseille manager Andre Villas-Boas 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.
