Dries Mertens’ father has confirmed that the forward wants to not only stay at Napoli but also ‘surpass’ Marek Hamsik.
Mertens matched Diego Maradona’s goal tally of 81 for Napoli during their 2-0 win against Frosinone on Sunday, and Herman was ‘honoured’ to see his son make history for the Partenopei.
“In Naples the fans are unhappy about the season, but the big gap with Juventus was also a burden,” he told Radio CRC.
