Maradona’s death shocked the whole world. Europe is undoubtedly the place hardest hit by the death of former Napoli number 10, the city that could baptize the stadium with the Argentine’s name.

Naples Mayor Luigi de Magistris asked on Wednesday that Napoli’s stadium be named after Maradona after his passing.

He made it clear through his official Twitter account hours after the tragic news was known. “We named the San Paolo stadium in honor of Diego Armando Maradona!”

In a few minutes, his message began to spread like wildfire on social media. This is just one more example of how deeply Diego left a mark on Naples and the city.

Maradona had an unforgettable time at Naples, where he won two Serie A titles, a Coppa Italia and a UEFA Cup.
