Marek Hamsik Robbed At Gunpoint Outside Napoli’s Stadium

By Chris Wright

I know you. You’re the guy from the Aphex Twin video aren’t you?

It takes a big old set of hairy swingers to rob a guy who looks like Marek Hamsik, and yet here we are. The Napoli midfielder was held up at gunpoint as he left the Stadio San Paolo following his side’s 0-0 draw against Sampdoria on Sunday afternoon.

Napoli’s official radio station reported that Hamsik was on his way to the airport after the game when two individuals stopped his car, smashed one of the windows, waved a gun around in Hamsik’s general direction and stole the Slovakian’s watch, diamond earring and a small-ish amount of money and other valuables.

Hamsik isn’t the first Napoli player to be robbed, with Valon Behrami, Edinson Cavani, Salvatore Aronica and Ezequiel Lavezzi also being shaken down in and around the city – Lavezzi’s wife being so terrified by the ordeal that she begged her husband to leave Italy and join PSG if stories are to be believed.

Hell, it’s not even the first time Hamsik has been robbed in Naples. A year or so ago, he had his flat broken into and robbed – though several items were returned after a ‘local businessman’ put out the request that the 25-year-old’s belongings were returned to him.

How nice of that ‘local businessman’. Such wonderful community spirit.

    Hard to feel sorry for a man with a haircut like that…

  2. Marco says:

    Aye, Camorra definitely got those back to him Chris! Gotta be a brave criminal to rob a Napoli player in Naples.

  3. Smelly Feet says:

    Oh my God Chris, I actually submitted that as a shit lookalike about a year or two ago! Never got a reply or anything and here you are taking all the credit. It takes a crafty man to wait 2 years before stealing someone else’s shite lookalike idea…so umm, kudos to that and the awesome website!

      @Smelly Feet: Yep. The minimum statutory period for a SLAL to become public domain is two years. Either that or our spam filter got you.

    Everyone knows Naples is run by the mob. its the biggest crime city in italy, bugger if i ever go there

  5. Jer says:

    If I held him up, I would have just insisted that he shave his stupid haircut off. Keep the watch etc.!

  6. Phil says:

    Unquestionably one of the most irritating looking footballers around, second only to Nasri.

    Hi Chris,
    you have completely invented the Hamsik flat breack last here. To honour the truth you must be informed that last year Hamsik got again a rolex rubbery in Naples, even with a gun put on the face. Then, a local businessman acted for him to get back the watch. But no burglary in the flat.
