Napoli spirit pleases Benitez

Napoli boss Rafael Benitez is happy with how his squad are dealing with the joint commitments of Serie A and Champions League football.

“The Catania match, amongst other things, will be the fifth game in a fortnight for us,” he told the club website ahead of Saturday’s encounter.

“Despite this workload, I've seen that the players are very aware and focused, ready to play a game that will not be easy to win.

“We worked with much commitment during several training sessions, waiting for this match against Catania.

“We need maximum concentration.”

The Azzurri, who will entertain Marseille in the European Cup next week, are joint-second in the standings – five points behind leaders Roma.
