Benitez: Napoli not in crisis

Napoli coach Rafa Benitez has hit back at their critics.

Napoli saw the team bus physically attacked by their own fans when driving away from the 2-0 Europa League loss to Young Boys in Switzerland on Thursday.

"I think that after three consecutive victories, a draw away to Inter and a defeat in the Europa League on a synthetic pitch, it is exaggerated to say we are not on the right track," said Benitez.

"I have confidence that this team has a lot of quality and will soon return to winning ways, controlling the game the way they always have done. I often speak to Aurelio De Laurentiis and asked if he wanted to come to the Castelvolturno training ground."
