Napoli boss Benitez plays down Higuain row

Napoli coach Rafa Benitez has played down a touchline strop from Gonzalo Higuain during defeat to Parma.

Benitez surprised fans when substituting Gonzalo Higuain for Duvan Zapata at 1-0 down, especially as Pipita seemed irritated at the change.

"I think a Coach has to make a tactical decision, Duvan proved on the field he had the desire to win and was what we needed at that moment."
