As You know Naples team was rarely much of a threat to the bigger teams in the league until 1984, and the arrival of Maradona for a then-record $ 7,5 million. Two years later, Naples won the league championship, the scudetto, and the Coppa Italia for good measure – and the city erupted. Apartments and buildings were festooned with banners and flags, the streets and walls were painted blue (traces of which can still be seen), and festivities continued for weeks. In 1988-9 the Naples team won the UEFA Cup, while Maradona and his Brazilian teammates Alemao and Careca made 1989-90 the season of Naples’ second scudetto. The following season saw the end of the glory years, though, as Maradona’s personal problems took their toll on the team’s performance. The decline of the Naples team had started.
While many bidders offered to take over Naples, billionaire film producer Aurelio De Laurentis offered the greatest investment and guarantees for creditors, and was granted three weeks to form a team. Clearly the passion has returned to Naples.
