It’s difficult to watch that video without getting a little emotional.
It’s an old cliche, but you oftentimes don’t appreciate what you have until it’s lost.
We in England spent so many years bemoaning a single handball, completely insignificant in the grand scheme of things, instead of appreciating what an incredible player and person he was.
One thing’s for sure – we’re all appreciating it now.
Rest in peace, Diego.
