BALL - "I take responsibility for this season and do not hide" ("Benfica")

Rui Costa spoke this Wednesday at the end of a corporate event that took place at the Benfica campus in Seixal. In his speech, the President of the Eagles admitted the season was below expectations in the main football team.

“This season, if in the Champions League we have come a long way, which, given the circumstances, we are proud of, knocking out Spartak (Moscow), PSV, Barcelona, ​​Dynamo Kiev and Ajax, breaking away only from Liverpool, despite an extraordinary 3-3 draw in England, it was true that in the national competition we were far from what we wanted. I assume this without any beating around the bush, because that’s my way of life. I take charge this season and will always take on whatever I need without hesitation. I do not hide and I will never hide behind anyone or anything,” said Rui Costa, summing up the work he has done as president of the club since October last year.

“When I was elected in October, I was well aware that there was a lot of work ahead of us to become the Benfica we want again, and I have no doubt that we will achieve this. We will do everything in our power to get there. We, the managers, coaches, players and fans of Benfica, will do our part. And we simply demand that everyone, without exception, who play this wonderful sport, seriously fulfill their roles and responsibilities,” the leader of the “reds” emphasized, ensuring that he strives for Benfica, “which honors its history, the winner, who enters the field. with the sole purpose of doing everything to win.”

BALL - "Real Madrid's defense is bad" (Champions League)

UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin spoke about the men’s and women’s Champions League finals, highlighting the presence of Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively, two clubs promoting the so-called Super League, a project designed with some emblems but no legs to walk on.

“I have no problems with Real Madrid, although at the moment I am not in contact with the board. But Real Madrid’s place in the Champions League final testifies to the purity of UEFA competition. Real Madrid and Barcelona are in the men’s and women’s finals. No one interfered,” he stressed in his statements to the Slovenes. 24ur.com Sports.

Čeferin also analyzed the performance of the teams: “In the semi-finals, I doubted that Real Madrid would be able to knock out Manchester City, especially after losing the first game. But it looks like they have nine lives, just like cats. This is an experienced team. In my opinion, the protection is bad. They have the wonderful Karim Benzema, who is often referred to as one of the most underrated players in football history. Luka Modric the older the better. But Liverpool have younger players and they have very important experience for the final. It’s going to be an incredibly interesting finale.”

We remind you that the final is scheduled for May 28, at 20:00, in Paris.
