Rafa: Napoli Like Pool

Napoli coach Rafa Benitez has described the role at the Serie A club as similar to that of his time at the helm of Liverpool.

Benitez has mentioned the passion that the fans have and the importance the clubs have on their cities, and is enjoying the relationship he has had so far with the Neapolitan fans.

"There are so many similarities between Liverpool and Naples, and the passion for football is one of them," he explained in the The Independant.

 "Now, they are two cities who find their local teams riding high again in the league."

"When people stop me here [in Naples], wanting to talk football, I tell them that the road through the season is a long one - but it is hard for them to look at it that way. Football is like that for all of us. It is a great creator of hopes and dreams!"

Rafa’s side’s next league game will be up against the current Serie A leaders Roma, who boast a perfect start to their campaign but the Napoli coach is confident of his team’s chances.

"Next, we look to our big game against Roma, the only side above us in Serie A, which has been brought forward to Friday because of public demonstrations.”

"It will be a test for us. A lot of people are talking about it. But the spirit among us is good," he concluded.
