Hamsik: Why should I quit Napoli?

Marek Hamsik has pledged his future to Napoli just days after super agent Mino Raiola advised him to move abroad.

Fresh from securing Zlatan Ibrahimovic a transfer from Milan to Paris Saint-Germain, Raiola – who also assists Hamsik despite not being his actual agent – believes the Slovakian needs to test himself at a bigger club.

“There is no reason for me to leave,” the attacking midfielder told La Repubblica on Monday. “There is an important project here, one which I feel as if I am in the centre of.

“I came here five years ago, after their promotion in Serie A, and we have gradually grown ever since then.

“I’m happy here so why would I want to change?”

The 24-year-old moved to the San Paolo after spells at Slovan Bratislava and Brescia. He’s tied to Napoli by a contract until June 2016.
