Benitez: Coppa win ‘beautiful’

Rafael Benitez has described winning the Coppa Italia in his debut season with Napoli as ‘beautiful.’

A Lorenzo Insigne brace saw off Fiorentina as Napoli won 3-1 in Rome as Benitez’s first year at San Paolo ended with a trophy.

“I think it was a beautiful game. We were in control at the start with 2-0 and it seemed simple, but then Fiorentina got back into it,” the former Valencia Coach told Italian broadcaster Rai Sport.

“We knew that we’d all win together or lose together. I am very satisfied with the performance. Fiorentina are a strong side and we worked hard to beat them.

“I always dedicate this type of trophy to my family, friends and the fans who stay close to this club every day.”
