Benitez favours former club Napoli for Coppa victory: “I hope that fate will be on their side.”

In an interview in today’s Corriere dello Sport, former Napoli manager Rafa Benitez spoke fondly of his two-year spell coaching in the south of Italy, favouring the club for tonight’s Coppa Italia final against Juventus.

“You’ll understand that, given my past and knowing my feelings, I am with Napoli. I have great respect for Juventus, a club with an indisputable past, but my two Partenopei years remain unforgettable. It is a great and beautiful city, with great fans, few are as passionate as they are. I hope that fate will be on their side.”
