The players of Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata led an emotional memory for the star Diego Armando Maradona, on the two-year anniversary of his inauguration as DT of “Lobo”. It was in the previous draw against Velez, when the entire squad of the “Tripero” in the usual team photo posed with a flag and also a special patch on the shirt with the image of the remembered “Diez”.
“Two years ago you arrived at the Lobo, forever,” was featured on the flag displayed by the eleven “Lobo” footballers before the match against the “Fortin”.

The date was September 8 but this was the first meeting at home for “Lobo”, so the players, several of whom were in the process of Maradona as DT, were excited.
Maradona’s step revolutionized Gimnasia and, due to the coronavirus pandemic, he was not allowed to be on the substitute bench in several games in the return of football until his health deteriorated and on November 25 last he died of a cardiorespiratory arrest .
