Maradona's record broken! - FCNaija

Serie A By: Linus Onyeze | 23/12/2017

Diego Maradona is no longer the top scorer in the history of Napoli as Marek Hamsik has passed the Argentine legend to become the Serie A club’s all-time leading scorer.

Maradona scored 115 goals for the Naples-based club, but that record was matched last weekend when Hamsik scored against Torino, and has now surpassed that landmark after he scored a goal against Sampdoria today.

Maradona's record had stood since 1991 before Hamsik toppled it in the 39th minute on Saturday, converting from close range to give Napoli a 3-2 lead.

It was the third goal in 18 Serie A appearances for Hamsik this season as Napoli sit atop the league.

Hamsik joined Napoli from Brescia in 2007 and has won two Coppa Italia titles and the Supercoppa Italiana in his time at the San Paolo.

Maradona won two Serie A titles, the Coppa Italia, the Supercoppa and the 1989 UEFA Cup while making 259 appearances over seven years at the club.
