Napoli could only manage a draw with Roma just before the winter break and this was a result that was really disappointing for midfielder Marek Hamsik.
The Slovakian midfielder says that the club gave everything in order to win the match and to come away with a 0-0 draw is not the right result. Napoli have been highly consistent in recent weeks, but they were looking to bounce back from a 3-2 defeat against Bologna in the previous league match. Prior to this defeat, they have had an impressive winning run that have almost put them as title contenders for the campaign.
In the previous 10 matches, the team had achieved nine wins and dropped only two points. The defeat against Bologna, however, has now been followed up with more dropped points. Apart from allowing the likes of Inter Milan to extend their lead in the table, it has also seen the likes of Juventus close the gap towards Napoli. Hamsik will be worried that he does not have a lot of opportunities to play in the Champions League at Napoli. At 28 years of age, the midfielder is at the peak of his career and he will want to feature regularly in the European competitions.
Napoli’s biggest disappointment in the match would be the fact that they did not manage even a single shot on target in the entire 90 minutes.“We gave everything we had and deserved to win, the ball just didn't want to go into the net. We should be satisfied with the performance and have to carry on like this.We are not thinking about the pressure of getting closer to the top of the table. We gave our all, the result was just disappointing. The only thing we were missing was a goal. Unfortunately we were unlucky,” said Hamsik.
