Carlos Salvador Bilardo, champion coach with Argentina in the 1986 World Cup, still does not know that Diego Armando Maradona, his disciple, friend and whom he loved as a son, died ten months ago.
Bilardo’s state of health has not been the best, and that is why they have hidden from him that Diego died, as well as José Luis ‘Tata’ Brown or Alejandro Sabella, to avoid strong emotions. However, the coach’s family feels that the time has come to tell him the truth.
This was confirmed by Jorge, his brother, in a talk with the radio program ‘How’s it going’. “What about Diego (Maradona) he still doesn’t know, these days we are going to see if we gather the boys, Ruggeri, Burruchaga, so they can tell him. They always fought with Diego, he was the male child she did not have. They had a thousand fights like you can have with your son. But they were always together ”, he commented.
“Carlos is fine, he is recovering, he watches the games here and abroad. We plan to take Carlos to see Estudiantes one day if the doctors approve us ”, added the brother of ‘Doctor’ Bilardo.
“Carlos would call you at 3 in the morning and tell you about a player and you would tell him that it was dawn and he would tell you ‘ehh you spend your time sleeping all day’ haha.”
