He moved to Napoli would have reunited him with Rafa Benitez, who was the man who brought into Anfield in the first place.
HAMSIK RULES OUT TITLE
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.
SLOVAKIA MISS OUT
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.
