Hamsik: Juve not decisive, tattoos…

Marek Hamsik insists Napoli’s Serie A showdown with Juventus will not be decisive but reveals he has space reserved for a Scudetto tattoo.

Napoli could face Juve seven points clear when they both meet next weekend, providing they beat Udinese and the Bianconeri lose to Crotone, while the Partenopei must defeat Feyenoord and hope Shakhtar Donetsk fall to Manchester City for a place in the Champions League last 16.

“It’s an important time of the year due to our next two games, but we can only think about Udinese,” the midfielder told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“We’ll be playing on a difficult pitch and then there’s Oddo’s debut. Sarri didn’t even need to tell us: we know ourselves that it’ll be tough.

“Napoli-Juve decisive for the Scudetto? It’s still early, but it’s still an important game and we want to do well in front of our fans.

“We want six points in these 180 minutes. It would be incredible to beat them, all of Naples deserves it.

“We’re doing well and we’re on the right path. We’ve made a great start to the season, but we mustn’t get carried away.

“Tattoo? I have so many of them, but I’ve reserved space on my body for a League title!

“We had a great game against Shakhtar and now we have to go to Rotterdam to win and hope City do us a favour.

“I’d like CSKA in the last 16 and then a team like Real Madrid after that.”
