Liverpool target still committed to Napoli: We can win title


Despite links with Liverpool and Manchester United, Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik is still focussed on winning the Serie A title.

Napoli star Marek Hamsik doesn't seem affected by speculation that he could sign for Liverpool or Manchester United.

The Slovakian playmaker was spectacular during the international break and again demonstrated what he can do in the shop window.

There have been reports that Hamsik is unsettled after seven years at Napoli, especially after his club's disappointing start to the season.

Napoli are already out of the Champions League having lost to Athletic Bilbao at the preliminary stage and defeats in the league have seen them already fall off the Scudetto pace.

But Hamsik still believes his team can come good.

"It's true that our season hasn't been perfect so far," he told French

"We haven't been consistent and we haven't reached our top level. We have already lost two games out of six and that is too many.

"However, I'm sure that things will get better. The international break is good because the whole squad will come back with a desire to win.

"We are still in the title race but we can't afford to slip further behind Roma and Juventus. Nonetheless we have a talented team and we can win it. There's still time to climb the table."

It remains to be seen whether Hamsik is still completely committed should a bid arrive from a major side in January or even in June.

If Napoli don't qualify for next season's Champions League it is reasonable to expect that Hamsik will move on.
