Mertens gave Maradona his T-shirt in honor of the scorer record.
Former Napoli captain Diego Maradona received the autographed T-shirt as a gift from striker Dries Mertens. The Neapolitan forward scored his 122nd goal in the club in the match of the 1/2 final of the Italian Cup with Inter (1:1). According to this indicator, he became the best in history, beating even Marek Hamsik (121). Maradona himself ranks third in the Napoli scorers list (115).
“A few months ago, Dries Mertens said that he wants to give me his T-shirt when he sets his scorer record. I thanked him right away and recorded a gratitude message because I knew he would beat Marek Hamsik and become the top scorer in the history of Napoli, ”wrote Maradona on his Instagram.
“Thank you for your kind words!” – answered Mertens online.
