Maradona: 'Napoli and Balotelli'

Diego Armando Maradona is confident Napoli will beat Milan tonight, but “I’d love to be Mario Balotelli’s Coach.”

“A prediction? Napoli to win, certainly! Even if Clarence Seedorf is changing Milan’s image, I hope he’ll only start a winning streak after this game...

“I always watch Napoli on television and also saw their Coppa Italia semi-final with Roma, so I’ve been able to appreciate their step up in quality this season,” Maradona told Rcs Sport.

“However, Rafa Benitez’s team is not yet as winning as ours was. We were able to win everywhere.”

Asked about Milan forward Balotelli, El Pibe de Oro was impressed.

“I would really love to be Balotelli’s Coach. I don’t know why everyone goes against him, as they make his life more difficult.

“At the World Cup in Brazil I am sure a South American side will win, hopefully Argentina if they can resolve their defensive problems.”
