Video: Insigne produces Maradona-esque assist for Napoli today

Posted by

Lorenzo Insigne is a Napoli man through and through, playing for the club at youth level and only leaving for short loan spells in the early 2010s, he’s well on his way to becoming a club hero.

Small build, great speed, amazing on the ball and the list goes on as to some of similarities with Napoli legend and the late great Diego Armanda Maradona.

The Argentinian legend died on the 25th of November 2020 and the footballing world hasn’t been the same since.

The commentators can’t help but draw the similarities between the two for Hirving Lozano’s goal today with the small Italian forward untouchable, darting around Fiorentina’s defence before find just enough space to set up the perfect assist for the Mexican speedster.

It’s only fitting that he pulls off an assist like this is the recently renamed Napoli Stadium that has been changed to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

Can you see the resemblance in play?
