I was lucky enough to meet Diego at the beginning of his career, in the youth leagues of Argentinos Junior, in my early days of photography, a vocation that would later lead me to follow him around the world. And in my many subsequent encounters with him, I was able to comprehend his true inner light.
I remember several anecdotes, right at the beginning of his career, when he, young athlete that he was, didn’t like photographers bothering him. From mid eld, he regularly “aimed” his anger toward the photographer booth and, kicking the ball with pinpoint accuracy, would manage to hit one of us with it, as he burst into thunderous laughter.
