Adored almost religiously in life, Diego Maradona has transcended his role in the life of Argentines after death. This Friday, the day after the funeral of the idol, the house where he grew up in Buenos Aires became another pilgrimage spot for fans, who are still trying to assimilate the loss of the eternal shirt 10 of the selection.

Maradona lived in a humble house in Villa Fiorito, a poor neighborhood in the Argentine capital, until he was 16, when he began his playing career at Argentinos Juniors. Among the visitors this Friday were two residents of Córdoba, the country’s second largest city, 750 kilometers from Buenos Aires. Like many other compatriots, Gregório Tatian and Matias Roriz traveled to say goodbye to the great idol.

Journalist, Gregório went to Buenos Aires on business, but that was not the only reason to cross the country.
– I also came here to work, but now is the time to follow the feeling of the people who are here, which is the same feeling as ours, to remember Diego. We are here to say goodbye. I always wanted to come and see the house, but it is always delayed. Now was the opportunity – said Gregório, who still cannot translate the feeling of the Argentines at that moment.
– You have to wait for time to pass, as it will be, his memory will always be very strong. He was the representation of the Argentine spirit, the Argentine narrative, the way of speaking, playing football, even walking. When that dies, the representation of a people is a very big event. It is impossible to know now what will happen.
Trader Matias Roriz shares the sentiment of thousands of Argentines about the loss of Maradona.
– We feel like it’s someone in the family, honestly. Diego was an important part of Argentina, especially in football, but Diego is eternal. I had to come here and see where he grew up, where he grew up, the conditions, with everything missing, very humble. Arriving where you arrived is impressive, leaving where you left.
