Napoli legend Maradona happy to be back in Italy

Napoli legend Diego Maradona has spoken to reporters for the first time since his return to Italy.

Maradona has claimed that he is delighted to be in Italy once again, but wants to clear his name regarding his financial status.

"I have not killed anyone," he told reporters. "I had faith in the people that signed my contracts, but I was not in the room.

"I was out training so I do not understand why the Italian justice system is asking for €40m.

"I want to thank the people of Naples for treating me like they have - it has made me smile.

"But I have to say - I have come to seek justice. I want to come back to Italy, I want to watch Napoli with my grandson."
