Maradona heaps praise on Ezequiel Lavezzi

Napoli legend Diego Maradona has been heaping the praise on the club’s current Argentinean superstar Ezequiel Lavezzi. After grabbing his team’s winner last Sunday against Brescia, the mercurial striker dedicated his goal to birthday boy Maradona. Speaking to Diario Olè, Il Pibe de Ora thanked the 25-year-old for his message: “I thank Ezequiel from the bottom of my heart for his gesture, he is worthy of wearing the Napoli number 10 shirt rather than the number 22”.
The Vesuviani retired the number 10 shirt in honour of its most famous player, but having worked with Lavezzi at international level, Maradona has paid him the ultimate compliment.
Napoli now look towards Thursday evening’s big clash against Liverpool at Anfield in the Europa League knowing that anything other than a win could spell the end of European competition for this season. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
