Benitez agent on Napoli reports

“Napoli is a great club, so we won’t rule out or confirm anything,” said Rafa Benitez’s agent, as he is favourite to replace Walter Mazzarri.

After last night’s game with Roma, Mazzarri finally announced he was leaving the Stadio San Paolo and handing the bench to his successor.

Persistent reports have suggested current Chelsea Interim Manager Benitez is the favourite, with suggestions President Aurelio De Laurentiis is flying to London in order to present his offer.

“Benitez’s future is not decided yet, so anything is possible,” agent Garcia Manuel Quillon told Napoli Network.

“This year Chelsea was a very important test for him, to take a team that was not in good shape and bring them to win the Europa League.

“Napoli is a great club that has improved a lot, so we won’t rule out or confirm anything. I cannot say any more on the issue.

“At the moment no directors have contacted us and I don’t know whether or not De Laurentiis will visit me over the next few days. I repeat, Benitez’s future is uncertain. We’ll see what happens.”
