Panaji: The Goa government will soon install the life-size statue of late Argentine football legend Diego Maradona in the coastal belt of North district by early next year, a senior minister said on Wednesday.

Maradona’s statue is already under making with a Maharashtra-based artist working on the mould, Calangute MLA and state Ports Minister Michael Lobo told PTI.

Lobo had announced installation of the statue of Maradona in 2018.

“The statue would be installed somewhere at Candolim or Calangute to inspire the football playing youth,” he said.

Lobo said the mould of the statue is ready.

“It is an actual-size statue as tall as late Maradona,” the minister said, adding that the 350-kg statue is part of the state government’s initiative to encourage football culture.

Lobo said a statue of another football legend Christiano Ronaldo is also being prepared which will be installed in North district of the state.

Maradona, considered the greatest footballer of all time alongside Brazil’s Pele, has died yesterday night following a cardiac arrest at the age of 60.
