Maradona Guillermo Farre has told the story
June 26, 2011, is a day that will forever stand out in Argentine football, as it was the day that River Plate were relegated.
Belgrano sent them down and Guillermo Farre, a legend of that club, revealed what Diego Maradona did that day.
“I heard Maradona‘s voice and I couldn’t believe it,” Farre revealed in an interview with Infobae, recalling the events of that day.
“He congratulated me, in the Diego way.
“He told me that he’d been staying on his own at a hotel and that he’d started jumping on the bed.
“It’s impossible to forget that and it’ll stay with me for the rest of my life.
“It’s that he congratulated me and that knowledge that, in a certain way, I made him happy.
“It’s amazing that he was grateful to me, after all he’d done to make us happy.”
