Maradona The pair met in two World Cup finals
Like most of the footballing world, Andreas Brehme has been saddened by the death of Diego Maradona.
He shared a large part of his career with Maradona, facing him in two different leagues and in two World Cup finals.
In conversation with Diego Chirivi, from Red + Noticias, the defender reflected on the Argentine.
“Diego was a player with a magical relationship with the ball and I am very sad, as football lost one of its biggest stars and personalities,” said Brehme.
“We played twice against each other in World Cup finals and, of course, we had several encounters in Serie A and then in LaLiga.
“On the pitch, he was always a fair athlete.”
