Naples mayor announces Maradona stadium name

The Mayor of Naples Luigi De Magistris has announced the Stadio San Paolo will be renamed the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

De Magistris confirmed the decision on Sunday.

He said, “There are many wonderful ideas, but at the end of the day, the name will be: Stadio Diego Armando Maradona."
