Naples city council confirmed the renaming of the stadium in his honor on Friday. It will now be known as the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.
Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis previously said in a statement: “I believe it is right to name the San Paolo after you, so we can keep you with us as a witness of the excellent path this team has taken.”
Maradona led Napoli to the club’s first Serie A title in 1987 and a second in 1990. Murals of the Argentine still adorn walls across the city.
No one has been officially charged in relation to Maradona’s death, although many are being investigated, including Cosachov.
