Maradona, the Argentine hero, died last month, and since then in tribute to their former talisman, the Stadio San Paolo has changed its name.
From 1984 to 1991, Maradona ever lived and achieved his height in Serie A with Napoli and was generally recognized as possibly the greatest football player.
Monza forward Kevin-Prince Boateng proposed that Lionel Messi moves to Napoli to pay tribute to Diego Armando Maradona, the former hero.
Boateng, who spent six months in Barcelona with Messi, is welcoming the new Argentine hero to follow in the footsteps of Maradona.
“I often hear of the comparison between Messi and Maradona and therefore I’ll make a proposal to Leo,” Boateng, who currently plays for Monza in Serie B, told ESPN.
“He should go to Napoli after his contract with Barcelona expires. It would be great if he himself called De Laurentiis and said: ‘I’m coming’.”
“Even if they have retired the No 10 shirt, ‘I would like to honour Maradona’s No 10 and come and play for a year or two at Napoli’, without thinking about money, just the heart.”
“Maybe then he manages to win a championship and then it would be the apotheosis, a movie story.”
“If I were him, I would think about it. By now, he has won everything at club level, closing in a legendary way would be incredible.”
