Barcelona and Boca Juniors, two of Diego Maradona’s former clubs, will play a friendly in honour of the late Argentine great on December 14 in Saudi Arabia.
The Maradona Cup will be held at Mrsool Park in Riyadh just over a year after his death. The 1986 World Cup winner died last November at the age of 60.
Boca said Monday in a statement the match would help “celebrate the legacy” of one of football’s greatest ever players.
Maradona had two spells at Buenos Aires giants Boca, playing for them during the 1981-82 season before rejoining the club in 1995 for the final two years of his career.
