Benitez Appointed Napoli Manager
The former Chelsea interim boss signed a two-year deal and will replace Walter Mazzarri, who has moved to Inter Milan.
Benitez led the Blues to third place in the Premier League and won the Europa League after he was appointed manager in November, following the sacking of Roberto Di Matteo.
Despite his success, the Spaniard struggled to win over a section of the Chelsea supporters during his time in charge at Stamford Bridge.
Benitez is hopeful of a better relationship with the Napoli fans and is confident of bringing further success to a side who were second last season – their best finish in Serie A since winning the Scudetto in 1990.
“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,” he said. “I understand the history of the city and how the club forms a fundamental part of the culture and traditions of Naples.
