A BOLA - Meité convinces Jesus (Benfica)

Sulijo Meite celebrated his Benfica debut with a simple Instagram post. “First game, first victory,” he wrote on the social network, illustrating with a photo of the game with Moreirense the day before yesterday in Moreira de Conegos. These are only the first steps of a defensive midfielder signed by Benfica from Turin for 6 million euros, but already enough to make a positive impression on Jorge Jesus.

The Benfica coach at the end of the game admitted that he did not expect the 27-year-old Frenchman to “more or less” from the game, saw a lot of passes “to the sides and back” and “little dynamics” of reinforcement. provided that he needs “a lot of play to be at the level of the team.” Meité, for Jesus, has shown a “reasonable” performance for those who are not yet familiar with the team’s routines and “don’t even know how to position themselves in set pieces.” Perhaps the analysis was demanding. However, the coach eluded the fact that Meite is “tactically experienced and physically strong.”

From these words, it can be inferred that Jesus expects much more from the reinforcements that arrived in Lisbon only two and a half weeks ago. And he believes that for this he has reasons. Despite her short time with the team, Meite was already able to demonstrate some of the qualities that prompted Benfica to invest in hiring – a strong physical presence that is used in duels, good game reading and occupancy, technical quality. in short and long passes and, above all, in going out with the ball. He competes with Weigl for the position of a defensive midfielder and in training (and a little in Moreira de Conegos) his ability to progress with the ball at his feet and dribble opponents was already noticeable. According to an analysis of the wyscout platform, the Frenchman tried six strokes, four of which were successful.

BALL - Chiquinho Conde: "Chalana brought fantasy to Portuguese football" (Benfica)

In the 199/1991 season, Chiquinho Conde, the current manager of Mozambique, was Chalana’s teammate at Belenenses when his career was already in the twilight of his brilliance at Benfica and a short spell at Bordeaux.

Chiquinho Conde, who at the time was in his third season with Cruz de Cristo, said he was caught off guard by the disappearance of one of the best Portuguese footballers of all time and remembers with enthusiasm the passing of the little genius. to one of the historical clubs of Portuguese football.

“I was happy to meet Chalana in the 1990/1991 season at Belenenses. Chalana was subjectively known as the idol of Benfica. For me, he was a genius who brought fantasy to Portuguese football, although when he arrived in Belenenses, after returning from Bordeaux and Benfica and after several operations, he lost a lot of his qualities. However, there has always been this pride of a modest, fantastic, hardworking and excellent professional who passed on knowledge every day, ”Ciquinho Conde was touched.

“It was fantastic to watch him play and perform, especially one-on-one, both in training and in the game, certainly not as fast as before. It was, without a shadow of a doubt, a wonderful and rewarding moment at a certain point in my career in Portugal,” he added.

In exclusive statements to A BOLA, Chiquinho Conde expressed his deepest condolences to the family: “I received this news with great sadness and horror. In addition to being the genius of Portuguese football, he was a great professional and a humble man who left a huge legacy. I admit that it is sad to see the departure of a man who marked an entire era in Portuguese football. I express my condolences to the family. Well done Chalan.

Feyenoord coach says Orsnes deal stalled: 'Benfica was here but no deal' - Benfica

Feyenoord coach Arne Sloot explained that talks with Benfica about Fredrik Orsnes have stalled and that the midfielder is not close to leaving. The coach also assured that there was no need for the club to sell the midfielder. “Now the situation is calm. Orsnes is not close to leaving. The clubs are not negotiating. Benfica were here, but it did not lead to an agreement. After that, there were no more negotiations,” the Dutchman emphasized in the preview. for the game against Heerenveen. As Record reported, the Eagles sporting director Rui Pedro Braz was in the Netherlands and made a €10 million offer. But now the coach prefers that Benfica not return to the attack.

“There is nothing more volatile than football, but I prefer that they [os outros clubes] don’t come here anymore,” he reminded, hinting at the club’s lack of need to sell players.

The manager left another warning after seeing Marcos Senesi miss Feyenoord hours before the game against Vitesse and travel to Bournemouth. “If the club is interested in our players, it can only lead to something at the beginning of the week. Clubs can call on Mondays and Tuesdays, but never again on Thursdays and Fridays.”
