Marek Hamsik has said no to Francesco Calzona

Former Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik made a few statements to the microphones of Sky Sport regarding rumors that he was joining the staff of Francesco Calzona, the partenopei’s new coach. " I just have to thank the coach for wanting me on his staff, and even the president today was talking to me about this fact – he admitted -. But I feel soì, in my mind maybe I am not yet ready for this".

"At thirty-six years old, there's still time to come to Naples, where I think and hope that I will always have open doors – added the Slovak -. There's always a very good relationship with the club, with the coach to whom I wish the best of luck. For him è a dream come true, he wanted it as he also said thanking the federation for giving him this chance. Although he will stay for a few months, è it&#39s no small experience".

"For me Calzona è an extraordinary coach, although he has been in this job for a short time, he used to be an assistant. He has great personality, in the national team the boys love him and they adore him for that and for the way he and his staff work. If he brings that to Naples, Napoli will grow,".

"With Mazzarri I made a great leap in quality; I love him. We had even spoken, he had told me to come and see him but unfortunately I didn’t find the time. I prepared for this trip two months ago, when there'è was the draw, then è it went like this…" commented Hamsik on Walter Mazzarri.
