Rafa Benitez on the draw, says his job is not at risk


Napoli coach Rafa Benitez believes his job is not at risk even though his side is only one point from the relegation zone.

The Partenopei suffered a terrible start to the new season crashing out of the Champions League and winning only one game in the Serie A but the Spaniard is not concerned.

"What is positive is that we scored three goals," Benitez said after the game.

"We also had a clear penalty that could have changed the history of the game. But it's also true we conceded too much.

"We lack serenity, I think we did well last season and I'm confident this season we will do the same.

"We need to recover the right mental attitude, it's a tough start to the new season but we have to be united to get out of this bad moment."

Asked if he fears for his future in Napoli, Benitez said: "No, there is no risk, I'm only focused on my job.

"This is a strong team, we believe in what we can achieve, we defeated top teams last season and we'll be back at our best through hard work.

"I coach a quality team and we will show we're quality."
