Napoli forward Marek Hamsik has claimed that Saturday's defeat to Juventus will spur his side on to better things this season.
Second half goals from Martin Caceres and Paul Pogba gave the Bianconeri the three points, but the Slovakian attacker has indicated that the loss will encourage the Partenopei to greater heights.
“Juve had a lot of the ball but never looked dangerous,” he told Tuttosport. “Unfortunately we left Caceres alone at the corner, and we were punished.
“This defeat will give us the right sort of anger for the next games. We start next weekend against Chievo, and that will be important. We then go to Bergame [to play Atalanta] and that will also be tricky.
“We have to work hard.”
