Gotta say, didn’t see this hot take coming. Kevin-Prince Boateng came off the top rope this week and chatted a bit about what Lionel Messi could do to further honor Diego Maradona.

Boateng said that Messi should consider signing for Napoli to pay the ultimate tribute to Maradona.

“Messi’s going to finish his contract at Barcelona, [but] how amazing would it be if he would just call Napoli and say ‘I will come’?

“‘They don’t give out the No.10 shirt anymore, [but] I would love to honour Maradona’s No.10 and I would love to come and play one year or two years at Naples, without thinking about money or nothing, just heart’.

“It would be like a movie. He’d have to go to practice by a f*cking helicopter because people would eat him alive. They’d be so happy.”

Gotta say, the prospect of Messi playing for Napoli is so insane even the biggest Maradona fan probably wouldn’t believe it to be possible.
