British tabloid The Sun on Wednesday published an article about Napoli’s Georgian midfielder Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, with Joshua Jones writing about the winger’s quality and human side, and telling football enthusiasts to pay special attention to the young talent.

Kvicha Kvaratskhelia has been dubbed the next Diego Maradona and has the perfect nickname to go with it”, the article reads, with Jones noting the midfielder’s “electrifying pace and sublime skill”.

He also tells readers about the player’s life, while highlighting Kvaratskhelia’s ability and confidence to dribble past defenders.

Already blessed with bags of talent, creative flair, an ability and confidence to dribble past defenders, comfortable with both feet and strong in the air, Kvaratskhelia has now added goals to his game,” Jones says.

The author also mentions Kvaratskhelia’s attitude towards his home country, where he still loves to return at every opportunity and “has a strong affinity with its people”. “It is said Georgian migrant workers in Naples already hail him for making them feel seen and proud in the city since his arrival”, he notes.
