See what happened that made Carlos Tevez kiss Diego Maradona on his lips (Video)
When a man kisses another man on the lips some believe it is a sign of love as they are homosexuals.
However Carlos Tevez locked lips with Diego Maradona for a different reason entirely.
Tevez was the hero with a 72nd-minute strike which proved to be the winner as Boca Juniors beat Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata 1-0 on Saturday, March 7th.
Fierce passion is an endearing trait of Scottish football, but Argentina is a different level of mental. Carlos Tevez won the league for BocaJuniors with this goal last night.#BocaJuniors 🔥⚽️ pic.twitter.com/LbSlhvSeyb

The one goal victory was enough for Boca Juniors to be crowned Argentinian Primera Division title winners after rivals River Plate drew 1-1 at Atletico Tucuman.
The kiss between Boca Juniors captain Tevez and Maradona who is the manager of Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata happened before the game.

Speaking after the game, Tevez explained that the decision to kiss Diego was because he needed luck to win.
He said, “I knew I had to kiss Diego, I was lucky that way…sometimes you have to look for luck.”
Maradona coached Tevez as head of the Argentina team to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa
