Benitez: March was a highlight

Rafa Benitez has reflected on his first season with Napoli, claiming that March was a highlight of the campaign.

The Partenopei won four games that month, including games against Roma and Juventus, but despite being knocked out of the Europa League to Porto, the Spanish Coach has insisted that it was a turning point for the future.

“It was a great month for us,” he told their official website. “We played well against big teams.

“We had to have a few big results to give the crowd that extra boost. I’d say it was a turning point for the season because the group saw an opportunity to win the title.

“We played some great football that month – the team grew and were at their peak physically.

“We beat Juve and Roma, and I think we deserved something from those Europa league matches as well.”
