Hamsik bans the S word

Marek Hamsik feels Napoli are stronger than last season, “but I'd ban use of the word Scudetto.”

The Partenopei finished third last term after challenging for the Serie A title over many months.

“President Aurelio De Laurentiis has overseen a fantastic transfer campaign, as we are stronger than last year,” the Slovak international told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Players like Gokhan Inler, Goran Pandev and Blerim Dzemaili guarantee a step up in quality.

“Having said that, if it were up to me, I'd ban use of the word Scudetto.”
