Maradona's Record Affects Hamsik Performance

Maradona's Record Affects Hamsik Performance

The new Hamsik scored one goal for Napoli this season, and he is only one goal apart from a record 115 goals of the Argentine legend

Goaltren.com - Marek Hamsik's agent said that the midfielder was under pressure to equal Diego Maradona's goal-scoring record in Napoli.

The new Hamsik scored one goal for Napoli this season, and he is only one goal apart from a record 115 goals of the Argentine legend.

The Slovakian has made 114 goals in Partenopei so far and on the verge of equaling Maradona's record. But his agent acknowledged that it was giving a less positive effect on the performance of the client.

Martin Petras believes that once Hamsik is able to equal that goal record - either via a penalty or another dead ball - it will release the burden from the shoulders of Hamsik, who last season scored 12 goals in Serie A.

The 30-year-old's last goal came when his side won 1-0 at Cagliari in early October.
"Hamsik?" He always scores goals, so it's natural that, in terms of Maradona's record, the faster he will match it, the better, "Petras told CRC.

"I asked him to take the next penalty in Napoli, which would make his mind clear, but despite that, he can not wait to face City." (crc / rer)
