Napoli talisman Hamsik commits to club amidst transfer talk

Marek Hamsik has reassured Napoli fans that he has never thought of leaving the club and remains fully committed.

The Slovakian playmaker has been a star player for the club since his arrival in 2007, but endured a difficult 2013/14 campaign as he struggled for both form and fitness.

There have been suggestions of a rift between Hamsik and head coach Rafa Benitez but he insists they still have a good relationship.

Hamsik has also dismissed speculation that he may decide to move on this summer after being linked to a host of different clubs.

"I have never thought to leave, I want to stay at Napoli," Hamsik is quoted as telling Pluska.

"I expected more of myself. I felt bad but I don’t want to find excuses. Luckily we won the Coppa Italia. 

"I haven’t had problems with Benitez.

"I had a good start to the season, but then I got injured. It has been the first serious injury of my career."
