¿Sabías que Maradona jugó un partido con el Granada?

Did you know that Maradona played a match with Granada?

In 1987, Granada, recently promoted to the Second Division, was looking for a signing that could catapult the team to the First Division eleven years later. At that moment, they decided to bet on Lalo Maradona, the Maradona's older brother. It was in September of that same year when the club officially announced the signing of Lalo, who came directly from Boca Juniors, one of the most emblematic clubs in Argentina. However, a small problem arose that put his arrival at risk: there was not enough money to sign him.

The story takes an interesting turn at this point. Diego Armando Maradona took the initiative at that time to ensure that his brother could end up playing in Spain and help Granada reach the top flight of Spanish football again. In a great gesture towards his brother, Diego organized a friendly match between Granada and Malmo FF, where he also volunteered to play. The idea was to raise funds through this meeting in Los Cármenes to be able to sign Lalo with the Nasrid club.

The match took place on Sunday, November 15, 1987 at the Los Cármenes stadium, and the three Maradona brothers, Diego, Lalo and the third brother, Hugo, put on the Granada shirt in an exciting match that unleashed madness in the city. It was a historic day for Granada, and fans could boast of seeing the three Maradonas on their team, even if it was for a few hours.
