Maradona shirt sold for 12,000 euros

A unique red Napoli shirt worn by Diego Maradona with a number nine on the back was sold for 12,000 euros ($13,600) at an auction in Turin on Thursday.

The Italian club usually wear sky blue and the Argentina star was best-known for wearing the number 10 jersey -- one was sold for 6,500 euros at the same event.

Maradona played in the top during an Italian Serie A fixture away to Pisa in 1990-1991 after he had given his usual number to team-mate Gianfranco Zola.
