Hamsik archives Nou Camp lesson

Marek Hamsik has urged his Napoli teammates to quickly forget about their 5-0 loss at Barcelona.

The Azzurri were crushed in Spain on Monday night in a glamour friendly against the European champions.

"We have to forget the loss against Barca because Serie A starts this weekend," noted the attacking midfielder.

"It was an honour to play at the Camp Nou though," continued the former Brescia player. "Barcelona demonstrated how well they can play – they are the best side in the world."

Walter Mazzarri's team, who finished third last term, start their Serie A campaign with a home game against Genoa on Sunday.
