Argentine legend Diego Maradona has insisted that he is not guilty of tax evasion in Italy.
"I have not killed anyone," he told reporters in Naples on Tuesday. "I had faith in the people that signed my contracts, but I was not in the room.
"I was out training so I do not understand why the Italian justice system is asking for €40m ($50m). I want to thank the people of Naples for treating me like they have – it has made me smile.
"But I have to say – I have come to seek justice. I want to come back to Italy, I want to watch Napoli with my grandson."
Maradona won two Serie A titles with Napoli.
