Saturday’s victory over Milan was crucial but by no means decisive, according to Medhi Benatia, who shared his thoughts after the game.
“The most important thing was to secure that win. We did well, especially when we had to dig in. That’s what counts. Milan showed themselves to be a very balanced side, who play well technically,” he said.
“Leading Napoli by four points means nothing. We’ve still got a long way to go. Let’s just say we reclaimed those points we dropped against SPAL.
“We’ll keep aiming to do even better. It’s a shame about the goal we conceded but, as I said, the key was to get the final result.”
