Napoli President, who has also suggested to rename the Stadio San Paolo to the Stadio San Paolo-Maradona, has revealed he has been working on a TV series about the Argentine.
“For Napoli, he represented everything,” De Laurentiis told Rai 1.
“The city came from difficult years after the earthquake, and Diego was a resurrection for the Neapolitans.
