Benitez concedes second place

Napoli boss Rafa Benitez has finally conceded second place, after claiming his club’s main goal was to finish ahead of the Giallorossi for the automatic qualifying spot in the Champions League.

“Clearly we won’t get second. We’ve lost too many games that we shouldn’t have lost, we haven’t kept the same high level, now we’ll get third place and then try to win the Coppa Italia.”
