Naples will wear Argentine team shirt in tribute to Maradona
Naples, Italy, Nov 29 (Prensa Latina) The Naples football club will take to the field today against Roma with a shirt with the colors of the Argentine national team in tribute to the recently deceased Diego Armando Maradona.
This was confirmed in a statement by the board of directors of the Neapolitan club which also pointed out that the premiere of the garment was scheduled for the date long before the death of the 'Pibe de Oro'.
'A year ago, together with Kappa Sport, we thought of designing a special shirt for Diego Maradona, which would remember his beloved Argentina and his strong bond with Naples. Together we hoped he would be able to see it, wear it and get excited with us,' says the text.
Maradona, considered by many to be the greatest soccer player in history, died last Wednesday due to a cardiorespiratory arrest at his home in the town of Tigre, and since then the tributes are daily in the so-called soccer planet.
An example of this is that at the beginning of each game a minute of silence is observed and when the game reaches minute ten, action is stopped and applauded in honor of the myth, the legend of world football, Diego Armando Maradona.
This Sunday and as they did last Thursday against Croatian Rijeka in the Europa League, the men of coach Gennaro Gattuso will seek victory, in order to score three points, move up in A Series and give the victory to the 'Ten'.
In the general table, Napoli is seventh with 14 points and if they win they would equalize with their rival in fifth place with 17 points.
