Soccer: Benitez's Napoli to 'fight for success'


Naples, May 28 - Rafa Benitez has vowed that
Napoli will be fighting for trophies under him after the Serie A
club announced that the Spaniard is their new coach.
"Now that the agreement is confirmed, I can say I am very
happy and very satisfied for having committed to a great club
with an illustrious heritage like Napoli," Benitez said on his
"I look forward to experiencing each and every one of the
fans of Napoli and their strong support for this project that we
will begin.
"I'm happy to become a member of that great family of
Naples and thus we can share the triumphs together.
"We will begin from the start as we mean to go on and we
will fight from the beginning to achieve success for the fans of
SSC Napoli".
Benitez, 53, returns to Italy following a brief stint at
Inter in 2010 after they won the Champions League-Serie
A-Italian Cup treble under Jose Mourinho.
He led Inter to victory in the 2010 Italian Supercup and at
the Club World Cup but left after criticising the club's
transfer-market moves amid erratic form in Serie A.
He won two Spanish league titles and a UEFA Cup in charge
of Valencia from 2001 to 2004 and steered Liverpool to victory
in the Champions League in 2005.
He also won the Europa League this month as interim boss of
London club Chelsea boss.
"I understand the history of the city and how the club
forms a fundamental part of the culture and traditions of
Naples," said Benitez.
"I must confess that I am extremely excited because I can
share my passion for football with the fans of Napoli; it is
proven that they are very, very special".
Benitez replaces Walter Mazzarri, who left Napoli after
four successful years and has taken over at Inter.
Napoli came second in the Serie A season that just ended
under Mazzarri to qualify for next season's Champions
