Marek Hamsik insists Napoli will be a title challenger.

The Azzurri slipped up last season to miss out on Champions League action.

"There are a lot of teams who can take on Juve," the Slovakian stated on Sunday. "We are amongst them and we'll give it a go.

"We won't be alone though as you will also have to take into account Milan, Inter, Roma and Lazio.

"But we have had the same Coach for four years and the same team for two - that's important. The squad knows each other well.

"Milan have sold Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Paris Saint-Germain? They'll lose a lot, but the Rossoneri remain a great team."
