The Getafe goalkeeper who conceded Leo Messi’s Maradona goal in the 2006-07 season, Luis Garcia, was proud of the goal that made him “the best player in history”.
Leo Messi has scored against all kinds of goalkeepers and teams. The Argentinian recently broke the record for the number of goals scored at a single club and Budweiser decided to pay tribute to him by giving a unique beer, together with a plaque, to each of the star’s victims.
Several goalkeepers had their photographs taken with the drink, but the best display of admiration for the crack was from Luis Garcia, the goalkeeper to whom he scored one of his best goals.
The current goalkeeping coach of Sanse, Getafe’s goalkeeper in the 2006-07 season, complimented Leo Messi and had his picture taken with his bottles for the Argentinean’s two strikes on the 19th and 20th of his career.
“When you concede a goal, it’s impossible to be happy, but this is the recognition of the best player in history, Leo Messi. Time passes quickly and I am proud to have played against him,” Luis García published on his Facebook.
