In what must have been a surreal encounter for many of the Napoli players, Diego Armando Maradona showed up at Castel Volturno to visit the Azzurri in the midst of their training session. Smiles and selfies were in no shortage as the footballing legend interacted with the group today. There has been a lot of speculation about Maradona taking on an official role with the club after both he and Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis admitted to holding such talks. Napoli faithful will be hoping that the legendary number 10’s presence will serve as further motivation for the side to achieve their full potential and bring home titles. His visit will serve as a reminder on just how special winning a title in Naples is and the opportunity the city and club afford them to enter their own chapter into footballing history and to forever enter the hearts of Napoletani both in the city and abroad.
Here is another great photo of the group with Maradona. You can see the childlike joy on the players’ and staff’s faces:
