Maradona: Napoli, get Balo!

Napoli legend Diego Maradona believes his old club should take advantage of the uncertainty at Milan and sign Mario Balotelli.

The 23-year-old has come in for heavy criticism from Rossoneri fans of late and has been linked with a move away from San Siro.

“Napoli, get Balotelli!” Maradona said in an interview for +Ntv. “It would be a sensational coup.”

The Argentine also today discussed compatriot and current Azzurri frontman Gonzalo Higuain with Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“Gonzalo is a great person,” he said. “I know his father too because we played football together and I must say he knows a lot about this sport.

“During the 2010 World Cup Gonzalo and I spoke at length.

“I hope he wins the next World Cup in Brazil and soon after wins the Scudetto wearing a Napoli shirt because, I can assure you, it’s the best thing in the world.”
