Hamsik ignores title talk

Napoli don't seem to be dreaming of the Scudetto despite being just three points shy of leaders Milan. "We want to stay in the top three," said Marek Hamsik.

The Azzurri climbed back into second over the weekend with a 4-3 win over Lazio, as Inter lost 3-0 to Milan.

"There are seven games left and we want to stay in the top three," the midfielder wrote on his website.

"We want to remain there so that we can qualify for the Champions League directly and thus avoid the preliminaries."

Napoli impressed on Sunday by again demonstrating their never-say-die attitude with a stunning fight-back and a hat-trick from Edinson Cavani.

"We stayed united despite going behind and we got straight back into the game, even after conceding the third goal," he added.

"We are all delighted, especially for the fans who again demonstrated that they are an exceptional public.

"The atmosphere at the San Paolo was indescribable."
