Agent: ‘Goals in Hamsik DNA’

Marek Hamsik’s agent says scoring goals is in the Napoli midfielder’s DNA.

The 28-year-old scored twice for Slovakia last night to take them to the European Championships, and is now focusing on the weekend clash with Fiorentina.

“In the national team he plays in a more attacking role,” Juraj Venglos explained to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“But he likes the position he plays for Napoli. Marek always scores goals, it’s in his DNA. I think he can get 10 goals [this season], but obviously he’s aiming for more.

“Marek is very happy, and not just because Slovakia had a great game yesterday, but for the two goals which helped his national team to a historic qualification for the European Championships.

“His performances in all the qualifying matches were satisfactory. Today Hamsik is a hero in Slovakia to all the fans and people who follow football.

“The footballing public are crazy with happiness, it’s so good.

“After the commitments with the national team, Marek is fired up for Sunday’s match [against Fiorentina] at San Paolo.

“He’s a professional, and he knows how important this match is. He’s available to the Coach, and he’ll go out there with the goal of winning three points against a good and difficult opposition.

“He’s happy at Napoli, where he wants to win something important. The date of his contract renewal is not a priority, and there’s no rush or stress.

“Marek is focused on his objectives, starting with the match against Fiorentina on Sunday.”
