Maradona hopes Napoli can end Serie A title-drought this term

Rome, Feb 3 (IANS) Argentine football legend Diego Maradona says “it could be Napoli’s year” to win the Serie A title in Italy but warns that “the problem is called Juventus, they never lose”.

Maradona’s former club is leading Serie A by two points at the moment, but haven’t won the Scudetto since he led them to it in 1989/90.

“Do I follow Napoli? Of course, I always follow them,” he was quoted as saying by football-italia.net on Wednesday.

“It could be the right year to win because of this (Gonzalo) Higuain, but the problem is called Juventus. They never lose! If they continue like this, it’ll be difficult for Napoli.”

Higuain has so far scored 22 goals to ignite Napoli’s hopes of ending the Serie A title drought of 26 years.
