Benitez: Second still a target

Napoli Coach Rafa Benitez says his side are still targeting a second placed finish in Serie A this season, though concedes it will be hard.

The Partenopei lost 1-0 at home to Fiorentina last night and trail Roma, who currently occupy that position, by six points with nine matches of the season remaining.

“I think we played a good match yesterday,” Benitez told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli. “The result however punished us.

“Second place is still an objective, but if Roma don’t start dropping points it will become very difficult.

“I’m not going to talk about the referee yesterday, I have respect for referees.

“I just hope they don’t make errors in the upcoming games.”
