Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri delighted with victory over Benfica

Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri was delighted with their 4-2 Champions League win over Benfica.

Marek Hamsik, Arek Milik and a Dries Mertens brace helped Napoli to victory.

“They hadn't lost on their travels for months, so we proved that we belong in this tournament. Putting a top level team like that in such trouble is an achievement," said Sarri.

“I have a slightly bitter taste in my mouth at the two goals we conceded at the end, because we were in total control and gifted them with our mistakes.

“At least it's a good less and I hope the lads realised at this level they absolutely cannot let go for a second.

“The best moment of the game, for me, was that when Mertens scored, Lorenzo Insigne ran 50 metres to get there and hug him. It was a wonderful signal."
