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.

Maradona Diego Armando


Did you Know?

At Napoli, Maradona reached the peak of his professional career: he soon inherited the captain’s armband from Napoli veteran defender Giuseppe Bruscolotti and quickly became an adored star among the club’s fans; in his time there he elevated the team to the most successful era in its history. Maradona played for Napoli at a period when North-South tensions in Italy were at a peak due to a variety of issues, notably the economic differences between the two. Led by Maradona, Napoli won their first ever Serie A Italian Championship in 1986–87. Napoli would win their second league title in 1989–90, and finish runners up in the league twice, in 1987–88 and 1988–89. Other honors during the Maradona era at Napoli included the Coppa Italia in 1987, (second place in the Coppa Italia in 1989), the UEFA Cup in 1989 and the Italian Supercup in 1990. Despite primarily playing in a creative role as an attacking midfielder, Maradona was the top scorer in Serie A in 1987–88, with 15 goals, and was the all-time leading goalscorer for Napoli, with 115 goals, until his record was broken by Marek Hamšík in 2017. When asked who was the toughest player he ever faced, A.C. Milan central defender Franco Baresi stated, “Maradona; when he was on form, there was almost no way of stopping him,” a view shared by his Milan teammate Paolo Maldini, who stated, “The best ever I played against was Maradona.”

Did you Know?

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.

De Sanctis Morgan


Did you Know?

Morgan De Sanctis joined Napoli on July 24th 2009. Napoli signed the goalkeeper from Sevilla F.C. on a four-year deal, for €1.5 million. De Sanctis’s nickname is “Superfly” and he is known to be a very superstitious. During his career he used to play with some extra hidden badges iron printed in the bottom of the back of his shirt. During his period with S.S.C. Napoli he used to play with a Superman logo’s badge with his “Superfly” nickname inside, a “Ciucciariello” badge (donkey), which is the team’s mascot and the “Curniciello” badge (the “curniciello” is a universal symbol of luck typical of Naples).

Mertens Dries


Did you Know?

Mertens’ agent Søren Lerby confirmed on 16 June 2013 that the player had agreed to sign with Napoli. He became Rafael Benítez’s first signing as new Napoli manager after a reported fee of €9.5 million was agreed with PSV. He made his Serie A debut on 25 August 2013, coming on as a second-half substitute for Marek Hamšík in a 3–0 win over Bologna. His first goal for Napoli came on 30 October when he netted the winner in a 2–1 away victory over Fiorentina. In Napoli’s first game following the Serie A winter break on 6 January 2014, Mertens scored his first brace for the club in a 2–0 win over Sampdoria. He then scored Napoli’s second goal in their 2–0 win over Juventus on 30 March, helping inflict only the second league defeat over the eventual champions. In the final of the Coppa Italia on 3 May 2014, Mertens replaced Marek Hamšík in the 64th minute and went on to score in stoppage time, securing a 3–1 win over Fiorentina. Mertens claimed another winners’ medal on 22 December 2014 after Napoli’s penalty shoot-out victory over Juventus in the Supercoppa. Despite being predominantly used as a substitute, he continued his fine form for Napoli over the course of the next season and a half, netting 10 goals and contributing 11 assists across all competitions in 2014–15, and 11 more goals in 2015–16. His tally in the latter campaign included a brace in Napoli’s joint-largest ever winning margin in the Europa League, a 5–0 win over Belgian side Club Brugge. Mertens also scored a second-half hat-trick in a convincing 6–0 victory over Bologna on 19 April 2016. Following the sale of Gonzalo Higuaín – the previous season’s Capocannoniere – to rivals Juventus, and a serious injury to his replacement Arkadiusz Milik, Mertens assumed a more senior role in the centre of Napoli’s attack for the 2016–17 Serie A season. On 11 December 2016, he netted a hat-trick in a 5–0 Serie A victory over Cagliari before taking it a step further in the next match by scoring four goals in a 5–3 win over Torino.[38][39] Mertens’ four goals, which included the fourth fastest hat-trick in Serie A history, was the first haul scored by a Napoli player since Beppe Savoldi in 1977. It also saw him become the first player to score successive league hat-tricks since Juventus’ Pietro Anastasi in 1974, and the first to score seven goals across two matches since Antonio Angelillo in 1958. His form for club and country was rewarded when, on 30 December, he was named Belgian Footballer of the Year for 2016, beating Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Radja Nainggolan of Roma to the award. On 4 February 2017, Mertens and Hamšík both scored hat-tricks in a 7–1 win over Bologna, a result which saw Napoli score seven away goals in a match for the first time in the club’s history. On the final day of the season he scored his 50th league goal for Napoli, and 28th for the campaign, ultimately ending one goal behind Golden Boot winner Edin Džeko. He maintained his goal scoring form the following season during which he scored 22 goals for the campaign.

Did you Know?

This is the 2018/2019 snake skin style of Napoli S.S.C. Europa League goalkeeper’s shirt, that looks very similar to the above Serie A version.  But if you take a closer view you’ll see some differences. First of all Europa League’s shirts have fluo Kappa’s logos on sides while Serie A shirts have white. But the main difference is that the Europa League’s shirts don’t have the snake’s head on the back because Uefa didn’t allow the team to use the snake’s design on the back. So Napoli goalkeepers played with the same snake skin’s style on front in Serie A and Europa League’s games but they played with snake’s head on the back only in Serie A games. Look down and beside to see the differences.

Koulibaly Kalidou


Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Kalidou Koulibaly during the Serie A game between parma and Napoli which took place in Parma, “Ennio Tardini” Stadium, on September 20th 2020. Napoli defeated Parma 2-0 and at the end of the game Koulibaly swapped his shirt with a Parma’s player whom we got it from.

Furthermore, all the players will have the “Keep Racism Out” patch applied on the jersey’s right sleeve and all the captains will wear the armband with the words “Keep Racism Out”.
