Buenos Aires has established an "anti-vandal" monument to Maradona. On the rooftop


Argentina has opened a monument to the outstanding fellow countryman football player.

Almost three-meter Diego Maradona is immortalized in bronze in a form of the team of a sample of 1986. That year the national team of Argentina in time last so far became the world champion on the FIFA World Cup in Mexico.

were going to open the Monument to the ex-boss of the Ukrainian football player Artem Milevsky in day of the 58 anniversary of a legend, on October 30, but weather has interfered - have opened later. Actually the version about "weather" looks unconvincingly: hoped that Don Diego will attend a ceremony personally, but that hadn't had time and an opportunity.

"Sculptures are usually devoted to the dead, but Diego is alive. And we are obliged to show him our respect. That he knew: local streets on which he has spent the childhood and youth, will always remember him. We hope, he will sometime come here, and by that will make us very happy", - Alberto Pérez, the employee of the historical commission of the District of La-Paternal has told.

La-Paternal is the area in the capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires. In him the football club "Arkhentinos Huniors" whose pupil is Maradona is based. In a t-shirt of this club the player is represented on the mural, nearby. And, bronze Diego was established... on a roof of one of municipal buildings - it is a little strange, but it is so safer.

Residents of the Region of La-Paternal are proud of the famous fellow countryman, and Maradona is an idol of the whole country. But in Argentina not all equally love soccer and football players, and monuments were exposed to acts of vandalism more than once. As, for example, Leo Messi's statue.

Jorge Martinez, the sculptor who has created Maradona's statue, has explained that he wanted to tell the work so: "In this work I wanted to show to

that moment from which all of us shouted delighted in 1986. Diego begins the pass to English national team gate to score the second goal in a match.

Ya studied photos and video, and the idea to recreate that second when Diego turns in "a space dragon" has come to my mind. So he was nicknamed for this goal", - the sculptor has told.

the Goal, and the truth, beautiful, admire.

Maradona's Pass to gate of British has happened in a quarterfinal of ChM1986 which Argentineans have won with the score 2:1. And in a couple of minutes before Maradona has scored other major goal in the career, the most scandalous. He has sent a ball to gate a hand. It was seen by all, except the arbitrator who has included goal. Maradona after the match didn't even hide that he acted not by rules. And "excuse" to myself I have thought up original: "It was God's hand!"
