The one who waits for something good…

You know the spoken language.

And wait, Napoli’s to say the least devoted supporters have. It had been 33 long years since the canonized Diego Maradona led the club to the last league title.

Now that long wait is over. New legends have been created.

The star decided

The idea was that Napoli would have been crowned champions already last weekend, but the miscalculation at home against little Salernitana meant that the big party had to be postponed.

On Thursday evening, however, it worked out.

1–1 away against Udinese was enough. Napoli have secured the league title. Again. For the first time since 1990.

Big star Victor Osimhen scored the equalizer after the break, his 22nd goal of the season, and when the ball went into the goal, the jubilation knew no bounds. The fact that Napoli played the match away from home did not matter, the stands were filled to the brim with supporters waving Maradona flags.

And at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, as the stadium in Naples is named after the icon’s passing in 2020, the decibel meter hit the ceiling. The match was shown on large screens in front of packed houses. The party will never end, the city has long been decorated in light blue.

The Stadio Diego Armando Maradona was packed, even though the match against Udinese was played away from home.

Breaking the dominance

For Napoli to win the league and break the giants of northern Italy’s dominance – Juventus, Inter and Milan have subscribed to the league titles in recent years – is of great importance to the Neapolitans, in a way that cannot be understated.

Naples is notorious for its mountains of garbage and organized crime. Unemployment is high, overcrowding widespread and the standard of living lower than in other major Italian cities such as Milan, Turin and Rome. The us versus them feeling is palpable. Now the slightly dirty cousin from the country has succeeded, and from heaven Maradona looks down and smiles.

The league title is Napoli’s third in history.
