Benedetti was a solid and efficient defensive midfielder who could also play as sweeper, an able dribbler and blocker, who intepreted both roles in a modern and clever way. He was considered a jolly due to his ductility on playing in almost all positions excluding goalkeeper. A player of quantity and quality but also a tough defender or last-minute bomber when needed, he was one of the most appreciated midfielder during the 1980s especially during his period at Avellino and Lecce. He was also a decent scorer due to his heading ability, shots from middle distance and the bycicle kick which was his specialty. In fact Benedetti not only had an incredible tactical discipline but due to his important goals he became an irreplaceable player. His career started in Serie C1 at Lucchese in 1978. However he played from the 1980 in Serie A with Pistoiese, Napoli, Genoa, Avellino and Lecce. He had his best seasons at Avellino playing 75 matches and scoring 11 goals from 1985 to 1988, and Lecce playing 152 games and scoring 12 goals but he played the two last years with the yellow-reds in Serie B. Despite a good career he could have had more considering his athletic and technical skills.
