Benitez hopes for Scudetto challenge

Rafael Benitez has admitted that he wants Napoli to challenge Juventus for the Scudetto this season.

The Spanish tactician replaced Walter Mazzarri at Stadio San Paolo last month, and the 53-year-old has insisted that the Partenopei have the squad to do well.

“Juventus are a strong team but there are other teams who can compete for the title,” he told reporters.

“And our goal is to be among them.

“My desire is to work hard, to win with this team and make the fans happy.

“I have spoken with Cavani, but I am focused on my job.

“If he stays with us, we'll meet again on July 21.”
