‘Hamsik was my best buy’

Atalanta director Pierpaolo Marino smiles every time Marek Hamsik impresses for Napoli in Serie A.

Marino was the man who signed the midfielder for the Azzurri, a swoop he rates as one of his finest.

“We signed him for just €5.5m and it is today difficult to accurately say how much more he is worth,” the transfer guru noted.

The attacking midfielder is believed to be valued at around the €30m figure by Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis.

Hamsik, born in 1987, moved to the Stadio San Paolo in the summer of 2007 after three season at the Rigamonti.
