According to Sport.sk, Slovakia coach Harpar said at a press conference that he hopes that Skriniar will succeed Hamsik one day in the future and become the new leader of the Slovak team.
Harpal said: "In my opinion, Hamsik is a great legend. He has been doing his best for the team. When he is standing here, it is very important to other players. He is young. The role model of the players can maintain a stable atmosphere in the locker room."
"He is really critical, but no one will take his crown in a short time."
"Skriniar? Of course. For example, in the next few years, I hope that a player with leadership talent like Skriniar can replace Hamsik."
