Napoli coach Benitez reluctant to compare Higuain with Maradona

Napoli coach Rafa Benitez is delighted with the impact of former Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain this season.

But the Spaniard is reluctant to compare the Argentine with Diego Maradona.

"There isn't a Maradona. He was far above the rest," said Benitez.

"Our team is based on the collective, although there is Higuain who could be the most essential player here right now. He doesn't only score goals; he also makes the team play better."
