Napoli's Benitez reserves special praise for Arsenal boss - 'Wenger is the best'

Arsene Wenger is the best coach in the Premier League according to Rafael Benitez.

As the Spaniard prepares his Napoli side for Tuesday night's Champions League clash with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, he has spoken of his admiration for the Frenchman during his time in charge in north London.

"I am expecting a strong team because I think Arsene Wenger is the best coach in the Premier League," said Benitez. "They have signed good players, at this point everything going well for them.

"Wenger is a great manager, a great person, someone who knows the league here in England. He has experience in Europe, Arsenal is always top four and he is doing a great job.

"Hopefully he can win (the Champions League), but another year, not this one."
