Rafa Benitez is reportedly close to signing for Napoli and former Valencia President Jaime Ortiz believes “it’d be a great move for everyone.”
The rumours continue to circulate that a meeting was held today in Rome between Napoli directors and Benitez’s agent, Manuel Garcia Quillon, which brought them closer to an agreement.
“Benitez is a fabulous Coach, as with him at Valencia we won two Liga titles, a UEFA Cup and European Super Cup,” Ortiz told Radio Crc.
“He is among the top tacticians in the world in terms of trophies and has everything it takes to be in charge of any top club.”
While his contract as Chelsea Interim Manager is set to expire despite lifting the Europa League trophy, the Spaniard has also been linked with Paris Saint-Germain.
“Benitez is not only a Coach, but also a manager of teams. He is perfect for English football because he wants to have a say in every area of the club strategy,” continued former Valencia President Ortiz.
“He is eager to make up for the poor season he had at Inter. Napoli are an important team and a big club, which is also what Rafa thinks.
“I’d advise Benitez to choose Napoli, as I prefer them to PSG. It’d be a great move for everyone involved.”
