Rafa Benitez was unveiled as new coach of Napoli yesterday. The former Chelsea manager has succeed Walter Mazzarri, now of Inter Milan, at the Azzurri.

"We want to build a stronger team here," he told a Press conference. "And we want to do well in all three competitions.

"For me, all the players are important. [Marek] Hamsik is important, as is [Lorenzo] Insigne. I think the Slovakian can make the difference.

"I have spoken with Cavani, we have text each other. But I have not talked about his future. We remain hopeful [that he will stay].

"Serie A, as well as other Leagues, have to deal with financial fair play, but Napoli are respecting the parameters and are doing well as a result.
