Pandev needed Napoli switch

Goran Pandev's move from Inter to Napoli will revitalise his career, the player's agent has insisted.

The forward joined the Stadio San Paolo outfit after previously rejecting the idea of a summer move to Genoa.

"Pandev needed this transfer," representative Carlo Pallavicino told Radio CRC on Tuesday afternoon.

"He felt that he was under-used and under-valued at Inter during the last campaign," Pallavicino continued.

"I pushed hard in order for him to move to Napoli because I know boss Walter Mazzarri and the people of Naples.

"Pandev is the sort of forward that Mazzarri likes because he can play across all of the attacking positions.

"I'm convinced that my client will re-emerge at Napoli."

Since his January 2010 switch from Lazio to Inter, Pandev scored just five goals in 46 League games for the Nerazzurri.
