Napoli manager Rafa Benitez has declared that he will offer some coaching tips to Swansea's new manager, Garry Monk if asked during their two-legged Europa League tie, according to the South Wales Evening Post.
The two managers meet in tonight's first leg at the Liberty Stadium, as Monk continues his apprenticeship as Swans coach following the abrupt sacking of Michael Laudrup.
Benitez, the former Liverpool and Chelsea manager, has over twenty years' coaching experience and has said that he is more than willing to give Monk some advice, but only after the match.
"I know him (Monk) from when he was a player, I was reading reports from my scouts, who said he was someone who likes good football and tactically will be good.
"I'm sure he will be good, and I can give advice because I am older than him, but it will have to wait until after the game."
Despite being third in Serie A after a strong start to the season Benitez thinks that the trip to Swansea represents a tricky test for Napoli.
Benitez claimed: "Playing a team from the Premier League is a real challenge for us. I know Swansea and I can tell my players that Swansea are a very good side.
"I don't know if it's an advantage to play a team I know - we will have to wait and see."
