Napoli coach Rafael Benítez said that attacking midfielder Marek Hamsik is more valuable than Real Madrid's new signing Gareth Bale. Benítez said that if Bale is worth the 91 million euros paid to Tottenham Hotspur for his services, then Hamsik is "priceless".
"Is Bale worth the 91 million euros Real Madrid paid for him? In this market certain clubs come for the big players, they pay and walk off with them" Benitez told Mediaset. The Napoli manager made it clear however that Hamsik’s case is different with the player being “priceless” because he’s “not for sale and nobody at the club wants to lose him”.
Hamsik has played for Napoli since joining from Brescia in 2007.
