Benitez: Napoli have a new mentality since my arrival

Napoli coach Rafa Benitez believes that the Azzurri have changed their mentality since the arrival of himself and the club’s new signings this summer.

The 53-year-old tactician joined the Partenopei this summer as a replacement for Walter Mazzarri, and he was joined at the club by the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Jose Callejon from Real Madrid.

Benitez spoke to Italia 1 about the team’s positive change and their recent 2-1 win over AC Milan this past weekend.

“Historical victory at the San Siro? I’m satisfied,” said the former Liverpool boss, as reported by Tuttonapoli.net.

“We did a great job against a strong team. After we were up 1-0, however, it wasn’t easy for us. Milan reacted and gave us a difficult time.

“The support of our fans is important both during and after the match.

“The environment is very similar to that of Liverpool during my time there.

“Has there been a different mentality at Napoli since my arrival? Yes. That’s why we bought players of a certain level on the market.”
