This Diego Armando Maradona shirt was used by Diego during Milan A.C. against Napoli S.S.C. which took place in on December 14th 1986 with a final result of 0-0. The shirt was swapped by Diego with an A.C. Milan former player which we got the shirt from.

Maradona arrived in Naples and was presented to the world media as a Napoli player on 5 July 1984, where he was welcomed by 75,000 fans at his presentation at the Stadio San Paolo. Sports writer David Goldblatt commented, “They [the fans] were convinced that the saviour had arrived.” A local newspaper stated that despite the lack of a “mayor, houses, schools, buses, employment and sanitation, none of this matters because we have Maradona”. Prior to Maradona’s arrival, Italian football was dominated by teams from the north and centre of the country, such as Milan, Juventus, Internazionale and Roma, and no team in the south of the Italian Peninsula had ever won a league title. In 1986-1987 led by Maradona, recently crowned World Champion Diego Maradona as the most influential player, Napoli won their first ever Serie A Italian Championship in 1986–87. Goldblatt wrote, “The celebrations were tumultuous. A rolling series of impromptu street parties and festivities broke out contagiously across the city in a round-the-clock carnival which ran for over a week. The world was turned upside down. The Neapolitans held mock funerals for Juventus and Milan, burning their coffins, their death notices announcing ‘May 1987, the other Italy has been defeated. A new empire is born.’ Murals of Maradona were painted on the city’s ancient buildings, and newborn children were named in his honor. Central defender Ciro Ferrara got his breakthrough, helping out the team to win the trophy. The two new signings Andrea Carnevale and Fernando De Napoli also proved crucial in the title-winning campaign, which sparked off fanatical celebrations in Naples.

S.S.C. Napoli returned to Serie A, following a couple of years in Serie B, where the club had rebuilt itself following the disastrous 1997-98 season, when it scored merely 14 points from 34 games. Unfortunately for Napoli, it was relegated once more, when a win against Fiorentina in the final round proved redundant due to all the other teams involved in the battle (to avoid relegation) also winning their matches; including a shocking win for Lecce against title-chasers Lazio. The investment in several new players came back to haunt Napoli when those players did not perform, causing bankruptcy three years later.

Did you Know?

In mid-1998 he joined Napoli, ahead Giuseppe Taglialatela and Ferdinando Coppola as first choice. In September 1999, he was loaned to Lazio as Napoli signed Alessio Bandieri. At Lazio, he was the 3rd goalkeeper behind Luca Marchegiani and Marco Ballotta. Returned to Napoli, now newly promoted to Serie A, he worked as backup of Francesco Mancini and Alberto Fontana. In mid-2001, he joined Sampdoria of Serie B, as a replacement for Matteo Sereni following his departure from the club. In 2002, he left for Reggiana in Serie C1.
