Coach Benitez to take over the reins at Napoli

Former Inter Milan, Liverpool and Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez will return to Italy to take charge of Serie A club Napoli.

"Rafa Benitez is the new manager of Napoli," club president Aurelio De Laurentiis said.

The Spaniard replaces Walter Mazzarri who quit after the team finished second behind Juventus in Serie A this season to qualify for the Champions League.  Mazzarri was in charge for under four years, building a strong side which twice qualified for the Champions League and won the Italian Cup in 2012.
