"Our squad is good, but Juve has invested for years and thus has an edge," Benitez told reporters.

"However, if we work well, we can get closer to Juventus. The president has confirmed that he is ready to intervene if necessary."
Napoli are currently in second place behind Roma in the Serie A table.
