Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik has committed his future to the club until 2018, president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed.

The 26-year-old Slovakian has made 262 appearances for the Serie A side after signing from Brescia in 2007 and De Laurentiis tonight described him as "a great player who honours the Napoli shirt".

Via his official Twitter account, the Azzurri chief added: "It is a shirt that Marek is happy to honour. We have renewed his contract, extending it until 2018."

De Laurentiis then posted a picture of himself linking arms with the attacking midfielder, who has notched 70 goals for Napoli.

Opening his unofficial account for the Campanian club tonight was Argentinian striker Gonzalo Higuain, who hit the winner in a 2-1 friendly victory over Benfica in Naples following his reported 40million euro switch from Real Madrid.

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
