Maradona Junior On Trial

Last updated : 12 July 2004 By Colin Rae
The 17-year-old son of the former Argentina international skipper, who is currently on the books of one of his fathers former clubs Napoli, is expected at Ewood Park for trials some time this week.

"I've got a contact in Napoli and we've heard he's a good player so he's coming over," Rovers boss Graeme Souness told BBC Sport.

"You can imagine the ridiculous pressure he is under over there and he fancies having a go somewhere else.

"He was scheduled to arrive on Monday but picked up a knock so we are going to check when he is going to arrive.

"Obviously the name is a terrible burden for the boy over there, so we will see for ourselves and make a decision."
