Napoli’s Saint: what happened since Maradona’s death

“You cannot question legends, like the Gods of Olympus,” De Laurentiis said, according to Sky Sport Italia. “There’s no actor who can imitate him, he’s the Pibe de Oro and will always remain.

“It’s a shame not to have him with us. Sometimes we are considered strict in managing the Napoli players, but at this moment it’s right.

“Maradona still releases a lot of energy, you see how many adore him, from 300 Boca fans came from Argentina, we must applaud all these people who have come to worship their idol.”

The President of Napoli then attended the unveiling of the statue dedicated to Diego Armando Maradona.

“We work to place the stadium at the level it deserves, it will take time,” De Laurentiis added. “Fortunately, the Mayor contacted me to reassure me that he wanted to do everything as soon as possible.

“We will put more statues of Diego in the stadium and also in the dressing room, where the players can touch the hand or foot of the God of football before entering the pitch.”
