Napoli could only manage a draw with Roma

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.


Manchester United is rumored on demanding Modric in exchange for David de Gea

Real Madrid wants David de Gea but despite all of the money and financial freedom that Rafael Benitez has during the summer transfer window it might not be enough to sign David de Gea as Manchester United is believed to be interested in snatching Luka Modric.

Even before Luka Modric had completed his transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid in 2012, the Croatian midfielder was a target of Manchester United and the Premier League club is still interested in signing him.

Martin Skrtel dismisses any kind of Regret

Liverpool and Slovakia defender Martin Skrtel has denied suggestions that he is feeling regret for his stamp on United goalkeeper David de Gea which earned him a three match ban from the English FA.

Skrtel has consistently denied that the stamp was intentional. The referee failed to spot this incident, which occurred in the final minutes of the recent 2-1 defeat against United, but it was captured on television. The English FA have used the video evidence to retrospectively ban the player. He becomes one of the few to have been banned for a stamp this season.
