Marek Hamsik is convinced Napoli will soon again be considered a major Italian power.

"I strongly believe in the plans put forward by this club. Within three years we will be among the strongest sides in Italy and I want to stay at Napoli for a long time," said the midfielder.

"I scored for my national team and now hope to do the same at the Stadio San Paolo," he smiled ahead of the match with Catania.

"We want all three points and will really go for the victory, as we have been unlucky recently and haven't reaped what we have sowed."
