“I am so proud of this choice,” grinned Datolo. “I have not yet spoken to [Diego Armando] Maradona, but I did speak with [Ezequiel] Lavezzi and [German] Denis.

“They told me all about Napoli and its passionate fans. I am very happy, as I’m going to play for the team that had Maradona.

“I hope to wear this shirt as I make it into the Argentina squad. I cannot wait to get on the field.”
