Benitez delighted Napoli back to winning ways

Napoli boss Rafa Benitez was delighted with their 4-0 rout of Livorno.

Benitez was happy to bounce back after their Champions League defeat at Arsenal.

"It was a difficult match, but the team showed the character and reaction I wanted after London," Benitez told Sky Sport Italia.

"It was important for us to win today. We were without Gonzalo Higuain, but we had Goran Pandev, while Jose Maria Callejon also scored. All the forwards are doing well.

"There is a difference in intensity in the Champions League. For example, Arsenal came out straight away and took a 2-0 lead, so in those circumstances everything becomes more difficult. Borussia Dortmund have the same quality and intensity as Arsenal, but we beat them 2-1 because we had the right intensity.

"I am satisfied with the performance today."
