Rafa Benitez delighted with Roma win, says Napoli can go far


Napoli coach Rafa Benitez was delighted after his side's 2-0 home win against Roma.

Goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Jose Callejon saw the Partenopei go third in the Serie A with the Spaniard insisting the best is yet to come from his players.

"Today the win went to a team that works hard together with the fans," Benitez said.

"I knew that hand in hand, all together, we would have won a lot of games.

"Roma is strong but we didn't give a lot away, creating a lot of goal opportunities.

"The offensive department is our strength although sometimes it can also be a weakness when we fail to be clinical in front of goal.

"But I'm satisfied and I'm sure [the missed opportunities are] just a matter of confidence.

"I understand we could have had more points in the table [at this stage of the season] but we're doing well in respect to performances.

"I am satisfied, we just have to continue with this intensity because there's still a long way to go."

Gonzalo Higuain, Jose Callejon and Lorenzo Insigne all enjoyed a great game at the San Paolo, much to the delight of the Spaniard.

"Yes, Gonzalo again showed that he's a champion," Benitez said.

"He scored a great goal against Atalanta and produced another beauty. Also Callejon's pass was not an easy one but he managed to produce a very precise assist.

"He's a complete striker, who helps the team, and is good with both feet.

"Lorenzo [Insigne] is doing exceptionally well. I've always believed in him and I'm happy with his progress. But today I want to praise the whole squad, the lads were incredible."
