Maradona with Napoli against Barca

Former Napoli hero Diego Maradona has revealed that he will “without a doubt” support the Partenopei when his two former clubs clash at the San Paolo.

Diego Maradona arrived from Barcelona in 1984 and had a huge impact on the Partenopei during his six-year stint in Naples.

He helped the Azzurri win two league titles, a Supercoppa Italiana, the Coppa Italia and a UEFA Cup and is considered a God at the San Paolo.

He further helps his case among the Napoli faithful when he goes against his other old club Barcelona and roots for the Partenopei when the Argentine superstar Lionel Messi arrives at his old home tonight.

“Without a doubt, my heart is with Napoli and the Neapolitans,” he told Il Mattino through Stefano Ceci. “Especially in this difficult game.”
