Koulibaly hopes team wins Scudetto for Diego Maradona

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly has revealed it would be “great” if the team can win the Serie A title this season and dedicate it to Diego Maradona

The last time Napoli won the Scudetto was in 1990. When the Underdogs were still playing and the man who led the club to two peaks. The News just passed away a year ago on Thursday.

While the club are doing well, collecting 32 points from 13 ufabet games at the top of the table, Koulibaly thinks if the team win this year’s trophy it would be “great”.

“If I had to tell the story of the 2021/22 season, I would call it. ‘In memory of Maradona’ it would be wonderful for Napoli to dedicate this season to him. In addition to winning the Scudetto for Maradona,” Koulibaly told DAZN.

“To think a legend like Maradona has said such nice things about me makes me feel incredibly lucky. I handed him the shirt and said I was waiting to meet him in Naples.”

“I was lucky enough to see him play at Real Madrid and that makes me very happy.”

He will be remembered this weekend at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona with a life-size statue, videos and laser show.

Napoli are currently joint top of the Serie A table alongside Milan, having suffered their first league defeat of the campaign.
