Napoli’s Marek Hamsik knows what he wants and due to the excellent period for his team he stated that Napoli’s objective is to reach Roma at the second spot in the rankings.
Everyone noted that in the last few months there is a team that is certainly performing really well, Napoli. Benitez’s guys seem to be in great physical shape and their results are there to demonstrate that Napoli is seriously looking forward to reaching Roma. The second spot in the rankings is definitely very important for the prestige but moreover because it gives automatic access to the Champions League that means secure profits ready to be reinvested in the transfer market session. Last year Napoli closed its season at the third place and unfortunately the Biancoazzurri were eliminated in the preliminary round of the Champions League by Atletico Bilbao. This sudden elimination affected Napoli’s cashiers and De Laurentiis, Napoli’s president, couldn’t strengthen the team as much as he wanted to.
At this stage the challenge between Roma and Napoli is renewed. As Hamsik stated Napoli is ready to overtake Roma in the rankings:
“We are challenging for the second place and we want to reach the Giallorossi. On Sunday we face a difficult team (Palermo). If we think about the 3-3 final result against them at San Paolo stadium we can easily understand that they are a strong team. However we want to go ahead on our path and reach Roma.”
The challenge is open, Roma knows but it will not be easy for Napoli to overtake Garcia’s team.
