Calcio Comment: Why is Diego Maradona so loved in Napoli?

In footballing terms Naples remains arguably the most unique city in Italy given the presence of only one club, Napoli, in the third largest populated commune on the peninsula. In contrast to Rome, Milan and Turin, where those cities' loyalties are divided between two clubs, the Partenopei have the undivided attentions of nearly one million inhabitants who generate a massive wave of enthusiasm each weekend.

The story is too old to be commented.

He didnt only play well. He talked loud about how he loved the Napoli and what he thaught about People from Milan, Rome and Juve talking about it as a poor and dirty city. Maradona said he would show them, and he did. Napoli became champions 2 times with Maradona!
