Napoli coach Benitez defends not 'caging' Pirlo

Napoli coach Rafa Benitez defended his tactics after their 3-0 defeat at Juventus.

Benitez was asked about his decision not to man-mark or 'cage' Andrea Pirlo in the Juventus midfield.

"We know Pirlo has quality, but we can't play an entire game just for one player. We knew it could be difficult, but we know that in future we can play as we did in the second half."
