The stadium of Argentinos Juniors, where Maradona began his career, has long been named after him.

Serie A side Napoli, who Maradona led to two Italian titles and the UEFA Cup, also renamed their Sao Paolo stadium after him following the death of their former player from a heart attack on Nov. 25.

Maradona is widely considered one of the best footballers of all-time and won the World Cup with Argentina in 1986. — SPA
