Former Chelsea and Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez didn’t seem like a fun and lively character managing in the Premier League, but it seems his move to the Calcio Serie A has changed all that.
With football teams always looking for the extra cash nowadays, Napoli thought they would do something rather creative for Christmas… such as dress their team as a bunch of gladiators in a calendar!
And why not? Not only do the Partenopei get some additional exposure, but you can now see Benitez, Gonzalo Higuain, Marek Hamsik, and Jose Callejon all donning costumes worn by fighters in the Roman Colosseum.
