The 2013-14 campaign will not be Marek Hamsik’s last at Napoli, his representative has underlined.
After Ezequiel Lavezzi and Edinson Cavani left for Paris Saint-Germain over the last two summer transfer windows, the Slovakian has no desire to go and ply his trade elsewhere.
“The boy is happy to play for Napoli and he will remain with the Azzurri for many more years to come,” Juraj Vengelos told Radio CRC.
“He’s married the project here by renewing his contract and he knows that the team continues to grow year by year.
“They are now back in the Champions League and he’s very happy about that.”
Hamsik, now tied to the outfit until June 2018, will be surrounded by a host of new players after a busy summer of transfers in Naples.
“The squad has been reinforced with a lot of players from abroad, but it won’t be easy,” the agent continued.
“But Marek is happy with new boss Rafael Benitez and there is already a good understanding with Gonzalo Higuain.”
Benitez has replaced the Inter-bound Walter Mazzarri, while the Argentine striker has arrived from Real Madrid.
