Hamsik: 'Too soon to tell' Napoli future

Marek Hamsik’s father admits “it is too soon to tell if this could be his final season at Napoli” amid new reports of a move to China.

The captain had been on the verge of this transfer over the summer, but the asking price was considered too steep.

“It is too soon to tell if this could be his final season at Napoli,” Richard Hamsik told Radio Marte.

“He has a contract to 2020 with option until 2021. We all hope he can remain, but it’s still too early to say.”

Hamsik record ruined by Schick

Marek Hamsik is now the player with the most caps in Slovakia’s history, but the occasion was ruined by Roma striker Patrik Schick.

The Napoli captain made his 108th appearance with the Slovakia jersey, surpassing previous record-holder Miroslav Karhan on 107 caps.

Hamsik had also celebrated this landmark with a goal to draw Slovakia level in the Nations League match.

It was the 22nd for his country, now just one shy of all-time top scorer Robert Vittek.

Classic Carletto

Rumours of Carlo Ancelotti’s demise have been greatly exaggerated, writes Giancarlo Rinaldi, as his Napoli delivered a tactical masterclass to beat Liverpool.

If you ever needed proof that pre-season friendlies don’t matter much, then this was it. Liverpool wiped the floor with Napoli this summer with a result that was a springboard to an undefeated start to Premier League and Champions League business. But Carlo Ancelotti did not build his reputation on such meaningless encounters. When it really counted he - and his team - did the business yet again.

‘When Hamsik plays, Napoli win’

A member of Marek Hamsik’s entourage points out that when the midfielder plays, Napoli tend to win.

The Partenopei captain played a key role in the win at Torino this weekend, whereas he was left out for the loss to Sampdoria before the international break.
