Benitez and Klopp react to Inter victoryExtended Highlights
SOUNDBITE: (Italian) Rafa Benitez, Napoli coach
“We knew they would be extremely dangerous on the counterattack, so our plan was first to not lose the ball in midfield. Even if on some occasions it didn’t work out that way, Obviously because they are really strong. But in the end we did what we had to do, score the first goal and then work all together”.

“I think that because my team was controlling the match, they might have thought that it was almost over. But we talked about their game against Malaga, because they were in the same situation, and we talked about that to remind ourselves that they never give up. But still we made a mistake, the good side of it is that we won anyway, and we can learn from it for the future”.
SOUNDBITE: (English) Juergen Klopp, Borussia Dortmund coach
“What we saw tonight is if we play what we can, we can win this game. But tonight we were not good enough, so we have to be better, and then everything is possible in this group. But of course it’s not the perfect start, but it’s our start, and now we have to handle the situation, and I’m pretty sure that we can be stronger after a few hours”.
