He proved his extraordinary abilities during the World Cup in 1986 by leading a generally unimpressive Argentina to the world title and then to the final in 1990.
Napoli also owes much to Maradona – he led the team to two national titles (1986-87 and 1989-90) and the UEFA Cup (1988-89).
Maradona set the world record transfer fee twice.
As a mark of recognition for services rendered to the club Napoli retired the Number 10 shirt in 2000.
