Diego Maradona revolutionizes everything he touches and every step of his life is an anecdote. One of those who lived this experience is Mariano Messera idol of the Wolf. “You see Diego and he makes you smile. It has a very particular aura. He was the most famous guy on the planet. When the news of the arrival at the Club came out, we did not believe it possible. But the rumor turned into reality. He was our idol and although it is impossible we all wanted to copy something from him. To see images of Diego, we had to wait for a Napoli or World Cup match. Today the guys with a button on the computer have everything they want to see. "
“The day he fixes, all the sports media were looking for an image. I was watching on television and suddenly a message from one of Diego's collaborators sends me asking for authorization to pass my number because he wanted to call me. After a while he called me and we chatted for 15 minutes. I didn't know whether to deal with you or you, I was nervous. But he immediately catches up and makes you feel like you're a lifelong friend. He wanted me to tell him how everyone was doing. It was a Thursday and he said ‘Marianito on Sunday I want to see you at the presentation, let's be close,’ ”Messera told excitedly in TNT Sports .
The love between Maradona and Gimnasia LP was very fast. Messera maintained that much has to do with the comfort that Diego found in the Club. "He could never have peace of mind and I think he found a place," he indicated and added one of those anecdotes that depicts the reality of Diez on a day-to-day basis: "In one of his first days at Estancia Chica he asked who some boys were watching. When they told him they were from inferiors, he stopped the cart that was taking him to go down to chat and take pictures. ”
As for the daily work Messera highlights the commitment of the Diego Maradona coaching staff to youth soccer players. “They give a lot of importance to the reserve and the lower ones. They wanted us to be close to see what material was below. They watch the reserve games and if we play as a visitor they ask us for the video to see it in the week. Paradela, Miranda, Melluso among others are important examples for youth players and coaches, and a beautiful message of how the CT sees them first class. Diego's sporting life in La Plata has confirmed continuity: "Luckily it will be a while to continue enjoying."
