Marek Hamsik’s agent has accused critics of the Napoli midfielder of ‘not understanding football’.
Hamsik came under attack for his performance during Napoli’s 1-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League on Tuesday, but Juraj Venglos maintained his client wasn't guilty for the Partenopei exiting the competition.
Marek’s fine, although I didn’t speak to him straight after the match,” he told Radio CRC.
I’ve browse the newspapers. There’s a touch of bitterness on my part after reading he was the worst player against Liverpool.
For me, he played well. Liverpool’s pressure wasn’t taken under consideration. It doesn’t appear right that he’s been criticised most, given how nice Liverpool were.
People forget he’s modified his role and that he’s playing in a fully different manner from what he was accustomed.
Maybe I will say that people who criticised him don’t understand soccer. can Napoli win silverware this season? In my opinion, yes.
They will win the Coppa Italia and Europa League, while Serie A has a great distance to go and there are still many matches left.
I don’t think Juventus will continuously win. they have powerful games against Napoli, Roma, inter and Milan in the second half of the season, thus I don’t assume the title race is over.”
