The 53-year-old Benitez brings his Napoli side to London to face the Gunners in the Champions League today.
The Spaniard took interim charge at Chelsea last November, leading them to the Europa League title, but failed to win over a section of the club's fans.
Asked if Benitez was given a rough ride at Chelsea, Wenger replied: "Yes."
Benitez says people were tough with him because they didn't expect him to go to Chelsea but he did very well.
Benitez, who also guided Chelsea to third in the Premier League, left Stamford Bridge to take over at Napoli in May.
He will lead the Serie A side as they take on Arsenal in a Champions League Group F clash.
Both teams won their opening group games and, while the Gunners are top of the Premier League, Napoli have also started the season strongly as they are second in the Italian top flight, having taken 16 points from a possible 18.
