Napoli coach Rafael Benitez declares that his side showed character in this afternoon's 4-0 win over Livorno in Serie A.

Napoli coach Rafel Benitez has praised his side for bouncing back from their Champions League disappointment against Livorno this afternoon.

The Azzurri suffered their first defeat of the season to Arsenal in midweek, but responded with a 4-0 victory over newly-promoted Livorno earlier today.

He told Sky Sport Italia: "It was a difficult match, but the team showed the character and reaction I wanted after London.

"It was important for us to win today. We were without Gonzalo Higuain, but we had Goran Pandev, while Jose Callejon also scored. All the forwards are doing well.

"There is a difference in intensity in the Champions League. For example, Arsenal came out straight away and took a 2-0 lead, so in those circumstances everything becomes more difficult. I am satisfied with the performance today."

Goran Pandev, Jose Callejon, Marek Hamsik and Gokhan Inler were all on target for Napoli, who now sit second in Serie A after taking 19 points from a possible 21.
