Diego Maradona Tells Argentina's Ezquiel Lavezzi To Take The Napoli No.10 Shirt

Maradona wore the No. 10 shirt for Napoli almost 20 years ago and wants Argentine forward Ezquiel Lavezzi to exchange No. 22 for the same.
Diego Maradona has told fellow Argentine Ezquiel Lavezzi to exchange his current shirt number for the same that the legend himself wore during his spell with Napoli.

"I thank Lavezzi. He's a special guy and a great player. 'El Pocho' must use the jersey with number 10 and not with the number 22," Maradona was quoted as saying by CalcioNapoli24.

Lavezzi joined Napoli in 2007 and has been frightening opposition defences since, having now made almost 100 Serie A appearances for the club.

Maradona himself spent seven years in Naples, making 188 league appearances as he led the club to two Italian championships.
