Inspired by Maradona, Mertens leads Napoli to win at Milan

MILAN (AP) Inspired by Diego Maradona's visit to training, Dries Mertens led Napoli to a 2-1 victory at AC Milan in Serie A on Saturday.

Mertens, who has often been compared to Maradona, provided two sublime assists to help Napoli race into a 2-0 lead, with less than 10 minutes gone at San Siro.

The 29-year-old Mertens also had several chances to extend Napoli's lead.
