Maradona’s Son Retaliates to Spezia Chants Against His Father

Spezia fans were at it again yesterday at the Stadio Alberto Picco following last season’s clash between the two sides in Liguria. The section of Curva Ferrovia, where the hardened Aquilotti occupy, was the area from where chants similar to the one last season echoed – against football legend Diego Armando Maradona.

Taking advantage of the ban endured by Napoli supporters, a small section of Spezia fans replicated scenes from last season’s encounter, abusing the Napoli icon.

Diego Armando Maradona Junior, son of the late great, has responded to the unfortunate events of yesterday in a talk with Il Mattino (via TuttoNapoli).

“First of all, I say that these are not fans. And they never miss an opportunity to demonstrate that they are totally distant from the values ​​of football and sport. These are people that disgust me. They shouldn’t have anything to do with sport, but more generally they should have nothing to do with decent people. What to say: they suck. They were shameful. Tarnishing my father’s memory was something absurd. On the other hand, it is something that made no sense.”

Last season, Spezia fans sang “Maradona is dead, Maradona is dead…”, before which they attacked Napoli with “Vesuvius wash them with fire.”

Napoli eventually won 3-0 – the same scoreline with which they won the final game of last season – with Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s penalty accompanied by a Victor Osimhen brace.
