The current league in Serie A, Napoli is set to wear special edition kit for this month's fixtures to commemorate their one and only legend, Diego Maradona.


The special edition kit will be available in three colors and will be worn by Lorenzo Insigne and Co for three games starting this weekend while hosting Verona, followed by the away matches while taking on the reigning champion Inter Milan on November 21, and another home game versus Lazio on the 28th. As for one continue fixture against Spartak Moscow in Europa League on the 24th, there has not been any confirmation yet whether Luciano Spaletti's side will also be wearing this Maradona shirt.


The club has made a statement in its press release below:


"The shirt features an image of Maradona superimposed over a large fingerprint, representing the club’s desire to pass on the Argentine hero’s legacy to the younger generations of the city of Napoli. The limited-edition Maradona Game will be available in three different colours, a production run of 1926 per design, the number itself a tribute to the year the club was founded. These will be available for purchase on the Web Store SSC Napoli, the Amazon Brand Store, the OfficialStore SSCN as well as a number of other distributors."


The Argentine talisman who passed away on November 25, 2020, had his stellar stint in Europe while playing for Napoli from 1984 to 1991. Maradona did not only bring Il Partenopei to their next level in the top flight but also managed to win the league twice in 1987 and 1990. El Diego also almost single-handedly led Napoli to clinch their first and only European trophy, UEFA Cup (the older version of Europa League) in 1989, plus Coppa Italia 1987 and Supercoppa Italia 1990.


Maradona signed for Napoli in 1984/85 season after two unimpressive seasons in Barcelona. He scored 115 goals from 259 appearances in all competitions. The Albiceleste skipper in World Cup 1986, 1990 and 1994 was once also awarded as capocannoniere or Serie A top scorer plus Coppa Italia leading scorer in 1987/88 season.


Unfortunately, his managerial career was not nearly as impressive as his playing career. Maradona was never appointed to take charge of any European clubs. He only had a chance to be at the helm of Deportivo Mandiyu, Racing Club, Gimnasia La Plata, several teams in Middle East plus Argentina national team in World Cup 2010. However, none of his brief spells there ended with glory.
