Marek Hamsik fired up the Napoli fans by declaring the Scudetto “is going to be war with Juventus.”
The Slovak international spoke to supporters at pre-season training in Dimaro after a 5-1 friendly win over Lega Pro side Feralpi Salò.
“We all know the Scudetto is going to be war with Juventus and we hope to win it this season,” grinned Hamsik.
“Playing in the Champions League is the ultimate for a player, so it would be extraordinary to win it.
“I also hope to beat Diego Maradona’s record of appearances, as I have many years ahead of me as a Napoli player.”
