Benitez & Hamsik back together

Rafa Benitez is reunited with former Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik after being appointed the new Coach of Dalian Yifang.

Benitez only left Newcastle United on Sunday but has already found work in China with Dalian.

Reports in England claim the 59-year-old will earn a £12m (€13.4m) salary – double what he earned at Newcastle.

The Spaniard links back up with Hamsik, the pair having worked together at Napoli between 2013 and 2015, winning a Coppa Italia and Supercoppa.

Hamsik laughs off Roma link

Marek Hamsik’s representative laughed off reports of a return to Italy for Roma. “He is absolutely happy at Dalian Yifang.”

There were some improbable suggestions in La Repubblica newspaper this morning that Roma were ready to swap Javier Pastore with Hamsik.

That would mean swinging straight back to Serie A just six months after leaving Napoli and joining one of their bitter rivals.

Roma consider Hamsik-Pastore swap

Roma could make a move to bring Napoli hero Marek Hamsik back from China and exchange him with Javier Pastore, claim La Repubblica.

According to the newspaper, Giallorossi President James Pallotta is considering offering Pastore to Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang in exchange for the former Napoli captain.

The paper also reports that the Chinese side would be willing to pay some of the Slovakian’s €9m a year salary, as he is reportedly fed up with life in China and wants a return to Italy.

Hamsik: If Napoli were challenging...

Marek Hamsik has admitted that he ‘misses everything’ at Napoli and could have stayed ‘if we’d been fighting for the Scudetto’.

Hamsik left Napoli for Dalian Yifang last month as their all-time top goalscorer and record appearance holder, but the midfielder’s time at the San Paolo coincided with Juventus’ domestic domination.

“At the end of the match against Sampdoria, I didn’t know how things would pan out,” their former captain told Il Mattino.
