Napoli head coach Rafael Benítez hails versatile defender Henrique
Napoli head coach Rafael Benítez has hailed the versatility of defender Henrique.
The 27 year-old, who joined from Palmeiras in January for €4 million, has quickly become a regular at the Serie A giants and shown himself to be capable of filling a number of roles.
Benítez is delighted Henrique has settled so quickly in Italy and was full of praise for the Marechal Cândido Rondon native, after he netted in Napoli’s 4-2 win at Catania on Wednesday.
“He can play more or less anywhere and is tactically astute,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “He has the experience to control his performance in different roles.”
