Hamsik: 'Bring on Man City!'

Marek Hamsik is not afraid of Napoli's Champions League games against Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Villarreal.

The Partenopei are in the tournament for the first time in 20 years and were given the toughest possible draw.

“Bayern and Manchester City are among the top teams in Europe. The games against these two sides will be fascinating and a great appointment for our fans,” said Hamsik.

“We know Villarreal well. I think that we have a very good chance against them in the two matches.”

Napoli were eliminated by Villarreal in the Europa League knockouts last season.

The San Paolo side open their Champions League campaign away to Manchester City on September 14, then welcome Villarreal on September 27.
