Benitez on his way to Napoli

Rafael Benitez has been confirmed by club president Aurelio De Laurentiis as the new coach of Serie A outfit Napoli.

The Spaniard – who recently led Chelsea to the Europa League title – is believed to have signed a two-year deal with the club.

Benitez is no stranger to the Italian topflight but will hope it goes better than his time with Inter Milan in 2010 when after an unimpressive six months he was dismissed.

The 53-year-old will replace Walter Mazzarri as coach at the Stadio San Paolo.
