Napoli legend Maradona sends gift to record breaker Hamsik

Napoli legend Diego Maradona has been in touch with Marek Hamsik after losing his goalscoring record to the current captain.

After surpassing Maradona's long-standing goalscoring record for Napoli last week, Hamsik netted his 117th goal in Friday's 1-0 win at Crotone.

Before the clash at Stadio Ezio Scida, Hamsik told Sky Sport Italia: "Surpassing Maradona's record was an achievement, but now what counts more is to win the game and get all three points for the team.

"Maradona gave me a gift. I can't tell you what it was!"

Napoli have collected 48 points from 19 matches so far to sit top of the table in Italy.
