Ex-Inter Milan chief Paolillo: Benitez Napoli success no surprise

Former Inter Milan chief Ernesto Paolillo isn't surprised by Rafa Benitez's success with Napoli.

Paolillo was at Inter during Benitez's disastrous spell in charge, but insists the Spaniard was not to blame.

"I never judged Benitez for the period in which he was with Inter. He arrived at the wrong time, remember that he arrived after Jose Mourinho who had just won everything there was to win, it would not have been easy for anyone.

"I'm convinced that Benitez will do fine with Napoli, will lead the team to a high placing."
