Marek Hamsik could be tempted to leave Napoli after his family was insulted in the Stadio San Paolo stands.
The Slovak international wears the captain’s armband, but his form over the past two years has been surprisingly shaky.
Today he was substituted during a 2-2 draw with Empoli and loudly jeered by the crowd as he left the field, throwing his armband aside.
According to reports from the local media, his wife Martina Franova was insulted by a fan when she was watching from the stands.
The supporter in question was immediately taken away by security.
It’s not the first time Hamsik’s wife has seen the worst side of Naples, as she was famously car-jacked while pregnant in 2011.
Hamsik himself has twice been robbed of Rolex watches in 2008 and 2013, the second time at gunpoint.
As Manolo Gabbiadini is expected to arrive from Sampdoria next month and Jonathan de Guzman was again on target today, Hamsik risks being pushed out of the Napoli line-up.
