Benitez downplays Napoli’s Scudetto chances

Speaking to Sky Italia, Napoli manager Rafa Benitez downplayed the chances his team has at winning the Scudetto this season:

“Roma and Juventus are strong, but Inter is also very strong: they’ve changed their management, medical staff, players, and they’re one of the ‘hidden’ teams that will do well. The Scudetto? Roma, Inter, and Juventus at the moment are one step ahead of the others.”
