Diego Maradona jr. is training with Juve Stabia

After winning the 2009 Italian beach soccer championship, Diego jr. has decided to start training with Juve Stabia, playing in the Pro League, second division. This represents a possibility to come back to the professional soccer in Italy. Castellamare di Stabia is located 30 kilometers southeast of Naples, closed to Sorrento.

In an interview with napolimagazine.com, Diego stated: "I am currently training in Castellamare di Stabia. I am trying to reach the best physical fit, since after three months of Beach Soccer, I am not at my best level. I should start well the initial training. I really hope to play with Juve Stabia, since the team is strong and competitive. Several friends like Marco Capparella and Gaetano Grieco play there, I hope I will demonstrate in the team my strengths."

Diego junior coming back to Quarto

Diego jr. did not make up his mind: after one week in Caivanese (left, the stadium), he decided to come back and play once more for Quarto, in the same division. This is 2 years after he helped the team to get promoted to the fifth series in the small city in the Naples area.
Reasons for the change are not entirely clear: maybe the fact that Caivanese was last in the ranking, possibly the lack of challenges within his former team, maybe the good relationship with Quarto's president and his good memory of the past.
The crude reality is however that Maradona junior has not yet found his true dimension.

PS: as an aside, it appears from the Italian press that the transfer from Caivanese to Quarto did not take correctly place from a procedural standpoint. This means that Diego jr. will not play until June 2009 in official games.

Maradona jr. plays for Caivanese

After his appearance to the beach soccer world tournament in 2008 where he scored in the Final game with Brazil, Diego jr. decided to come back to the "real soccer".
He has the chance to train for few weeks with River Plate's second team in Buenos Aires, Argentina in October 2008, but he finally decided to come back to his root, in a place close to Naples.
He got a job in the sixth Italia football division, playing for Caivanese boys. Caivano is a small (35000 abitants) town near Naples, its stadium holds 1300 spectators and is in artificial turf.

The most famous Caivanese alumn is Ciro de Cesare, who played in first division at the beginning of this century.
