Lionel Messi who was playing the first game after the death of Diego Maradona, honoured his former coach by showing off the Newell's jersey, right after he scored the winning goal for Barcelona against Osasuna on Sunday. While Barca thrashed Osasuna 4-0 at Camp Nou, it was Messi's tribute that grabbed eyeballs.
After hitting the net in the 73rd min, the 33-year-old argentine stripped off his Barcelona top and flaunted the red-and-black of Maradona's jersey which he was wearing underneath. While both, Maradona and Messi have played for Barcelona, the latter decided to don the Newell's jersey. Messi was a youth player there and Maradona had played 5 matches for Newell's near the end of his glorious career.
