Diego Maradona and Hirving Lozano have more in common than only being players of Napoli. Today in the Europa League game, Hirving Lozano's team paid a great tribute to Maradona and the Mexican player could be seen very sad. It is that, in addition to sharing Napoli, they had a history years ago in which Diego Maradona was obsessed with him.
One of Diego Maradona's many follies was presiding over a club in Belarus. Whilehe was the president, Diego Maradona had become obsessed with hiring Hirving Lozano to become the star of that team. Maradona wanted to do the same thing they had done in Napoli with him but with Lozano at Dinamo Brest.
After receiving a negative answer, it was unusual in the life of Diego Maradona, the former player of the Argentine national team called Napoli and said that they should hire Hirving Lozano. Maradona believed that Lozano's mischief could be very important for the Naples team and that he would fit in perfectly with the team.
Diego Maradona saw in Hirving Lozano what he was when he was young: a young player with many aspirations and a desire to succeed in life. Maradona was not so bad with his prediction since Hirving Lozano in very few games this season had already begun to win the affection of Napoli fans. Diego Maradona will be only one and Hirving Lozano should feel proud that he has thought so much for him to play in Napoli.
