Napoli dedicate this season to Maradona - Koulibaly

Thu 25 November 2021 | 17:35

Kalidou Koulibaly believes it would be great for Napoli to dedicate the Scudetto to Maradona a year after his death. Napoli won the Scudetto twice, in 1987 and 1990, both times with Maradona.

If I had to tell the story of the 2021-22 season, I would call it ‘In memory of Maradona.’ It’d be wonderful for

Napoli

to dedicate this season to him, even more so to win the Scudetto for Maradona,

Koulibaly

told DAZN.

“Thinking that a legend like Maradona said kind words about me makes me feel incredibly fortunate. I sent him a jersey and said I was waiting to meet him in Naples.

“I was lucky enough to see him when we played

Real Madrid

and it made me very happy.”

Maradona died on this day last year at the age of 60 from a heart condition. He will be remembered this weekend at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium with a life-size sculpture.
