“Dear Rui,
Following what I told you in the conversation we had this afternoon, I officially confirm my intention not to participate in the governing bodies of Sport Lisboa e Benfica or any structures in its business area.

The professional challenges I face are incompatible with the range of activities, and Sport Lisboa e Benfica always deserves maximum commitment from those who choose to devote themselves to it, with effective belligerence.

I am your friend and fan. Over the years, we have exchanged trust and nurtured complicity. We were together in difficult times. More has been done in recent weeks to restore Benfica’s democratic spirit than in many years.

You have an exciting process in your hands that deserves the support of all Benfica fans.
I hope he will be successful both in his personal life and in achieving the goals that will lead Benfica to return to its former greatness.

Jose Eduardo Moniz ”

The departure of Petit and Musa to Benfica: “They didn’t tell me anything.  I'm counting on him, on this animal" - Boavista

The Panthers coach does not consider him a loser to Benfica and sees “a very large margin of progression.”

Petit told Channel 11 that he has not yet been informed of Mousa’s departure to Benfica and that he is counting on him for the next pre-season, even if he says it with a smile on his face. The Portuguese coach took the opportunity to speak about the player in question after a year with the striker. “They didn’t tell me anything … I’m counting on him, on this animal … (laughs). As a manager, we are lucky to have six or seven players in our team that clubs are interested in, including Mousa. I am happy because Musa, when we arrived at Boavista, we realized that he was very exhausted, he was a player who ran away from his position a lot. He pressed everywhere, went to the goalkeeper, to the sides, but the striker lives on goals and insight, and he needs oxygen to reach the moment of the final blow with this insight. We felt that he was tired when the ball reached him and we did the work with him, making him understand that the pressure in other areas must be done by others,” he began with an underline, further detailing what he sees in the future reinforcement Roger Schmidt in Luz “Musa is a very strong player, plays very well with his back to the goal, holds the ball, holds the ball and attacks from deep. He was a very important player and he still has room to grow. He has a very strong mentality, he is a child , who likes to work hard, often goes to the gym, and sometimes we even have to slow him down,” the chess coach emphasized.

BALL – “Penalties over Taremi were well marked” (Vitoria de Guimarães)



BALL - "Penalties over Taremi were well marked" (Vitoria de Guimarães)

Vitoria de Guimarães goalkeeper Bruno Varela was interviewed by Canal 11 about the two penalties awarded against Porto at D. Afonso Henriquez” in the 29th round of the League on April 10, a game that the “Dragons” won 1-0, Taremi’s goal, from the 11-meter mark, in the 36th minute – the Iranian will not miss the second penalty, in the 63rd minute.

The 27-year-old, who spent a second consecutive season at Guimarães and spent most of his training at Benfica, thinks João Pinheiro’s bid was balanced.

“I always analyze games when I get home. Then, on the first day, I do an analysis with the goalkeeping coach. In this move (first penalty), we talked about it; I was not in the best position. I hoped that Taremi would not be able to control the ball, but he did. Then I still had time to return to the goal, in the end I didn’t return, I was halfway, and it was at the halfway point that I decided to leave the goal. The first thing I thought was that I would get to the ball first, but halfway through I regretted it. It was discussed a lot, but to be honest, if my team’s striker was fouled, it would be a penalty for me. I make a decision. He did his job, I should not have approached it like that, ”he admitted.

In the second half, the blue-and-white striker was again awarded a penalty, but missed.

“If it was a striker from my team, like Oscar Estupinan or Bruno Duarte, I would take the penalty. You shouldn’t be hypocrites. He was a “rat”, as they say. Taremi does it very well… I was frustrated myself, because I studied it and saw several similar moves in his performance. But in the game we make decisions. When he touched the ball, I was already raising my hands, because I knew that he would hit me on the knee. He was looking for contact, but I accept the punishment, ”he said.
