Agent: ‘Hamsik always wanted Napoli’

Marek Hamsik's agent says Mino Raiola was right, as his client “married Napoli 10 years ago and never wanted to leave”.

The Slovakian international was previously represented by Raiola but broke off relations, reportedly because the agent wanted him to leave the San Paolo.

Raiola claimed this week that he had in fact been ready to renew Hamsik’s contract, as he wanted to stay with the Partenopei for life.

Rooney: 'Capello cheered on Italy'

The incident occurred at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, which saw the Azzurri crash out in the group stage and the Three Lions follow soon after.

“Capello’s English wasn’t great, and it just didn’t feel right. He brought his backroom staff in and they were all Italian and it just didn’t feel right,” Rooney told talkSPORT.

Hart considers Torino comeback

Joe Hart could stay on at Torino after becoming disillusioned with the other alternatives and Manchester City, claims Tuttosport.

The goalkeeper tried to rediscover some of his confidence during this season in Serie A, even if the Granata had one of the worst defensive records in the division, conceding 66 goals in 38 rounds.

With the loan spell expiring and Manchester City demanding a huge transfer fee, Hart is said to be unimpressed with the West Ham United idea.

“We were terrific. The boys won a game that seemed lost, doing quite the job,” the former Milan midfielder said after the game.

As Paul Gascoigne turns 50 today, Football Italia salutes the one-of-a-kind who remains in Lazio hearts.

Words: Tom Scholes

There haven’t been many players quite like Paul Gascoigne, and I doubt we will ever see anyone like him again. Mercurial, magical, mischievous, Gazza was everything and during his spell in Serie A with Lazio we got to see every side of Paul Gascoigne’s game on the pitch and what he was capable of doing.

Joe's done it his way

Joe Hart has won over Torino fans, but perhaps he gained more from the experience than the Granata, writes Richard Hall.

Mistakes he has made a few and now Joe Hart possibly faces the final curtain in Turin. He has loved laughed and cried and certainly had his share of losing, but when all is said and done, he has certainly done it his way.

The outcast from Manchester City arrived in Turin to much applause and, whilst he has had mixed fortunes, he has faced it all with a smile. This has endeared him to the Granata faithful, so much so that they have ignored his errors and want him desperately to continue enjoying the city.
