Hamsik delighted with second place

Napoli starlet Marek Hamsik is delighted his side ended 2010 in second place in Serie A, insisting that it crowns a great year for the club.

The Partenopei have won four games on the bounce in all competitions and currently lie just three points adrift of League leaders Milan.

Sunday's last gasp win over Lecce was the third time Napoli have won a game in added time in four matches.

"We dominated for the entire 90 minutes," Hamsik said. "We were never put under [any pressure] and in the end we got the victory.

"I am very, very happy that we won again.

"We have crowned this 2010 with three points. We are on the second step of the podium after the first half of the season," he concluded.
