De Rossi visits Maradona

Daniele De Rossi is continuing the Boca Juniors dream in Buenos Aires, as he visited Diego Armando Maradona at the legend’s home.

The Roma icon confessed he first became truly aware of Boca Juniors by watching old clips of Maradona, then deepened his affection for the club.

It was his dream to play at the Bombonera, so when Roma allowed his contract to expire, he accepted a new challenge in Argentina.

Maradona praised De Rossi for this decision and it eventually led to this fascinating meeting at El Pibe de Oro’s home.
