Napoli coach Benitez compares Hamsik with Liverpool's Gerrard

Napoli coach Rafa Benitez has been asked to compare Marek Hamsik with Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard.

Hamsik has scored four goals already this season.

"Hamsik is very important because he slots in at the right time, but Gonzalo Higuain also does well to create space for him," Benitez told Sky Sport Italia.

"Is Hamsik like Gerrard? They are different players. Hamsik doesn't have Gerrard's strength, but he does have more tactical intelligence."
