Fans mourn former Argentine Tomas Carlovich

Hundreds of fans showed their respects on Saturday to former Argentine footballer Tomas ‘Trinche’ Carlovich, who was called by Diego Maradona as best in the world, at an open-air wake at a stadium in Rosario.

Because the country is in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, fans filled out the stadium stands wearing red and blue face masks, the colors of the Central Cordoba club where Carlovich made his name, to bid farewell to a player Maradona regarded as his superior.

Carlovich died last Friday at the age of 74 after he got hurt in the head during a brutal robbery.

A hearse transported his casket to the center of the field, where it was laid on the grass with a ball placed on top, for his final goodbye.
