Hamsik confident in Napoli strikers

3 September 2013 12:59

In-form Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik feels that the club's strikers will soon begin to assume goalscoring responsibilities.

Napoli have made a prolific start to the Serie A season, scoring seven goals in two games, with Hamsik grabbing four of them.

Jose Callejon and Gonzalo Higuain have scored the others as Napoli overcame Bologna and Chievo.

However, Hamsik is confident that former Real Madrid forward Higuain and the club's other strikers can ultimately contribute more goals.

"I'm under no illusions. It is nice to be the Capocannoniere (Serie A leading scorer), but the strikers will now wake up," he told Corriere dello Sport.

Hamsik, however, is pleased with how his season has started, with Napoli sitting top of the league prior to the international break.

The Slovakia international, who signed a new five-year contract with the club in August, revealed that manager Rafael Benitez has set him a target of 15 goals this campaign.

"I'm delighted with how the term has begun,” he continued.

"Benitez has asked me to score 15 goals and I feel I can do that."
