Napoli will pay tribute to Diego Maradona on Sunday when
they host Lazio hoping to put two painful and costly
consecutive defeats behind them.
The football world honored Maradona on the anniversary of
his death on Thursday but Napoli are using this weekend’s
fixture to enable Neapolitans to finally say goodbye at the
a place where their icon was most at home.
Maradona remains a God-like figure in Naples, where children
are still named Diego in his honor and murals of the
Argentine can be found all over the city.
