Diego Armando Maradona believes Maurizio Sarri’s side “can win the Scudetto, as at times it reminds me of my Napoli.”
The Partenopei are only two points behind Serie A leaders Juventus and they have a head-to-head clash coming up next month in Turin.
“Napoli can do it. I believe in the Scudetto, I believe in Neapolitans and I believe in this team,” Maradona told reporters at a charity event in Zurich.
“At times, this side reminds me of my Napoli.”
El Pibe de Oro was leading the way in the only two Serie A title campaigns for this club, in 1986-87 and 1989-90.
