The footballing world was shocked with the demise of arguably the greatest player to have played the round leather game. And the Serie A side have taken it upon themselves to give him the highest honour as a former player of the club.

All major three trophies won in Napoli’s history has been inspired by the late Maradona with two Serie A titles and the UEFA Cup.

Before Maradona joined the Gli Azzurri in 1984 from Barcelona, the club has never won any trophy in their history. During the 1987-87 season, Napoli won the league and cup double with the help of the left-footed genius of Maradona.

The following season Maradona lifted the UEFA Cup trophy for Napoli and consolidated the win with another Scudetto in the 1989-90 season.


Meanwhile, the Argentine professional league will also honour Maradona as the competition will be renamed after him.
