The former Liverpool manager impressed in his first year in Naples and wants to build something special at the popular Serie A side.

“We do not sell these players, whilst they have margin for growth, they can do more for us, and it is important to retain them,” Benitez has told reporters today.

“For the fans it is easy to say to say we are aiming for something.

“But we have to prove on the field that we can win against anyone, without fear, with the mentality to win from the beginning.”
