Benitez won't criticise Chelsea boss Mourinho over Mata selection

Napoli coach Rafa Benitez has refused the chance to criticise Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho over his treatment of Juan Mata.

Mata is finding life hard under Mourinho.

"Juan Mata is not my player, not any more," said Benitez, when the subject was raised.

"Mata is a great player. You can see his numbers over the last two years, but it's not my business any more. I cannot decide if he plays or not. I will concentrate on my players."
