In a condolence message, Sheikh Hasina said "This Argentine player, one of the best in the history of football, will always be remembered in the hearts of football fans around the world and his sporting skill will inspire to future football players throughout the ages."
She also prayed for salvation of the departed soul and conveyed sympathy to the bereaved family.
