Rome: Napoli’s stadium is named after Diego Maradona, an Argentine who has won the club two Italian league titles. This was stated by Naples Town Hall on Friday.
City officials and the club’s president proposed renaming the San Paolo Stadium just hours after Maradona’s death on November 25.
The city government said in a statement: “This order was signed by the entire city council.
The statement described Maradona as “the greatest footballer ever, who, through his immense talent and magic, awarded the Naples jersey for seven years, presented him with two Italian League titles and other prestigious trophies.” , And in return, received eternal and unconditional love for the whole city. “
Napoli’s next home game will be against Real Sociedad in the Europa League next Thursday.
Napoli have already paid tribute to Maradona, who played for the club from 1984 to 1991, in two domestic games.
The players wore his number ten for a minute’s silence in a Europa League game the day after Maradona’s death. In Serie A on Sunday, Roma’s winning team played in a jersey reminiscent of Argentina’s colors, which was a tribute to Maradona.
