Marek Hamsik is expected to be available for Napoli’s game against Sampdoria next Monday.
The Partenopei host the Bluerchiati at Stadio San Paolo, looking for the three points that could see them go to within two points of Roma.
And they will do so with the Slovakian forward amongst their ranks after the attacker confirmed to reporters that he has recovered from his foot injury.
“My recovery from the injury is going well,” he told profutbol.sk. “I have put in the hours and the therapy is going well.
“I no longer feel the pain in the foot, so hopefully I’ll be at the disposal of Mr. Benitez this week.”
