Racing, Banfield and several clubs fired former midfielder Ricardo “Bocha” Ramírez this Saturday on their social networks, who died at the age of 48 as a result of a lung complication derived from a coronavirus picture.
“Racing Club regrets the death of Ricardo Ramírez, a footballer emerged from our Inferiores who played in First Division in 1993 and added 27 games. Our affection goes to his family and friends,” the academic institution communicated with a postcard of the ex-hook during his racinguista times .
Ramírez rose to fame at the time as he was highly praised by Diego Armando Maradona during his time as Racing manager in 1995 (two wins, six draws and three defeats). “I was very surprised by the Ramírez boy. I agreed on what I tell them: Ricardo Ramírez is my successor,” the idol had sentenced as soon as he took the reins of a Racing that had some famous names such as “Piojo” López, “Lagarto” Fleita, ” Turkish “García, Gustavo Costas, Pablo Michelini and” Nacho “González, among others.
But the stiff competition and a quick exit of Maradona from office after his godfather Juan De Stéfano lost the presidential elections in the club, played against Ramírez, who continued his career for promotion, in clubs like Italiano and Berazategui, for example.
Some time later, “Bocha” confessed in an interview with Olé recovered by the blog On A Tile: “If Diego said that for something, it will be. I know that I have barbaric conditions. At that time I imagined that Diego was going to return to football in Racing and was going to play as 10 and I as 8. I was a bit derailed there, I liked A lot of going out. I finished playing and I was fucking like anyone. They told me to stay and rest, but I couldn’t. I was young… “.
Ramírez also stood out in futsal, with the Banfield and Barracas jackets. “We regret to inform that at dawn on Saturday Ricardo” Bocha “Ramírez died of a complication from covid. He was 48 years old and had been a scorer on several occasions in the 2000s. A big hug to his family,” recalled the Pasión Futsal site on their networks.
