Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he is extremely happy with the way Slovakian defender Martin Skrtel has become a leader in the team after almost coming close to the exit door in the summer.

Skrtel fell out of favour with Brendan Rodgers last season and he rarely featured for the first-team. He was expected to leave the club in the summer with the likes of Napoli showing interest in him. He moved to Napoli would have reunited him with Rafa Benitez, who was the man who brought into Anfield in the first place.



Slovakia star Marek Hamsik has said that his club Napoli cannot win the Italian Serie A title this season. The midfielder is regarded as one of the transfer targets for Manchester United.

The fact that the player once again set to fail in winning the title may actually result in the transfer of the 26-year-old, who had a great first half of the campaign. Hamsik was one of the reasons behind Napoli's imperious form under Rafa Benitez at the start of the season. Like many others to the club, his form has also decreased in recent weeks.



Slovakian midfielder Marek Hamsik, who will not be taking part in the World Cup 2014 after his team failed to qualify for the tournament, has said that Napoli will still be contenders for the title at the end of the season.

After suffering a second defeat of the season, Rafa Benitez's men have slipped behind Roma and Juventus in the title race. They went into the match against Juventus with a lot of high hopes, but they were unable to come away with even a draw. They were beaten by Antonio Conte's men with a lot of ease.



Slovakia remain in with a chance to qualify for the World Cup 2014 with only a few matches remaining. After all the teams in the group have played eight matches, Slovakia are only a few points behind Greece in the final qualification spot.

They have given them a great chance to make an appearance at the World Cup after managing to beat table leaders Bosnia-Herzegovina on Friday. Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel was part of the team that managed this significant victory. After the match, he praised his teammates for being part of this huge victory.



Napoli will certainly be weaker without the presence of Uruguay star Edinson Cavani up front, but midfielder Marek Hamsik believes that they can overcome this deficiency and still challenge for many titles in this season. After many years, Napoli are once again in with a shout to win the title.

They came extremely close last season only to see Juventus win it for a second time in succession. After the departure of Cavani, Slovakia midfielder Hamsik has become one of the important members of the team. The club recently saw the arrivals of players like Gonzalo Higuain and Pepe Reina.



Slovakian midfielder Marek Hamsik, who has managed to establish himself as one of the important members of the Italian club Napoli, has said that he hopes that manager Walter Mazzarri and striker Edinson Cavani will remain at the club next season as well.

These three are amongst the important cogs of Napoli. They have been able to transform a club that was fighting to finish in the top half of the table to a club that can challenge Juventus for the title. Napoli will once again qualify for the Champions league next season as they are expected to finish second in the season.



The agent of the Napoli and Slovakia midfielder Marek Hamsik has revealed that it is highly unlikely that his client will ever leave Napoli. The 25-year-old is regarded as one of the best young midfielders in Europe.

He has been attracting attention from the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester City in the past.



The Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik has said that he feels that the title race in Italy is now a three horse race, as the likes of Juventus, Inter Milan, and Napoli are fighting out against each other in the table.

Napoli have two points behind Juventus were table, but Inter Milan are not too far behind. They are another two points behind the Napoli with the opportunity to leapfrog Marek Hamsik and his team after this weekend. This is because Napoli will be taking on Inter Milan during the weekend.
