Pepe Reina has praised Rafa Benitez for bringing “a winning mentality” to Napoli ahead of tonight’s Milan clash.

“We take it one game at a time, it doesn’t matter whether it’s in Serie A or the Champions League,” the former Liverpool goalkeeper told Rai Sport.

Napoli have a 100 per cent competitive record under Benitez, winning all four matches between Serie A and the Champions League.

“We beat Borussia Dortmund this week, but now we have to think about Milan. After Milan it will be the turn of Sassuolo, so on and so on.

“The first thing Benitez brought to the team was a winning mentality and that is important for us. We step on to the field to win every single time and that really helps.”
