Serie A top scorer Victor Osimhen paid tribute to late Argentina and Napoli legend Diego Maradona.

Napoli are on course for a third Serie A title in their history, and Osimhen hailed the former Captain as a motivation for the team and entire City.

Maradona played for the Partenopei based team from 1984 to 1991 before leaving for Spanish outfit Sevilla.

He led the club to their last Italian league title in 1990, Uefa Cup, Coppa Italia, and Supercoppa Italiana.

Maradona also won the 1985 Serie A’s player of the year and managed to finish as Coppa Italia’s top scorer in the 1987/88 season.

The Forward has now revealed how the Argentine icon inspires him, fans, and the club at large.

“In Napoli, the first player who comes to mind of the fans is (Diego) Maradona. Even if we can win the Scudetto, we can’t compare with what Maradona has done, he’s more than a legend.

“We’ve been doing quite well, but I don’t consider myself as an icon, until we achieve the objective.”

“As a footballer, when you arrive in Napoli you fall in love even more with football, because they base all their life on the game and the support for the team.

“To be able to try to give them something to remember is a big mission for me,” He said.

Osimhen is the arrowhead of Napoli’s exciting team this season. He has scored 19 goals in 21 games for Luciano Spalletti’s side this season.

The Partenopei have built a 15-point lead as they chase a first title since 1990.
