New Napoli signing not afraid to compete for his position
Mertens spoke to Belgian newspaper Gazet van Antwerpen about his desire to make a name for himself at Napoli.
“I am not afraid of competition,” said the Belgian international.
“Benitez was determined to sign me, he knows my qualities and I will be able to make my mark here.
“There are some great players at Napoli and I’ll try to give my best, just as I did at PSV. It wouldn’t be a problem if I sat on the bench a few times, as I’m sure I won’t lose my place in the Belgium squad.”
Dries Mertens scored 16 goals in his 29 league appearances for PSV during the 2012-13 campaign.
