Benfica: Umaro Embalo sacked, announces businessman



Benfica: Umaro Embalo sacked, announces businessman

[artigo atualizado às 23h03]

Umaro Embalo, the 21-year-old B team striker, has left Benfica.

The news was broken by businessman Catio Balde, who says he was informed by Rui Pedro Braz that the player was “no longer part of Benfica’s plans” and that he was therefore empowered to “take care of the athlete’s life”.

Catio Balde says he is “disappointed and frustrated” by the decision, which he says he cannot understand.

“Managing Benfica with Umaro Embalo is deplorable. I do not understand and do not accept how an asset that was sold to Leipzig from Germany for 20 million euros in 2016/17 in a transaction that did not go through can be depreciated, and only those who were responsible at the time can explain why “.

The businessman also recounts old talks with Southampton that fell through due to a commission requested by Cesar Boaventura, who did not represent the athlete, and ensures that “in January, Basel wanted Umaro Embalo and presented an offer to buy 50 per cent of the Pass for 3.5 million, there was a transfer agreement and suddenly Benfica backed down, saying they want the athlete to stay because they believe in him.

Fonte do Benfica assures Maisfutebol that Catio Balde was never informed of the player’s dismissal, but they were open to hearing decisions about his future.

The same source says that Basel’s offer was a loan, although he had the option of buying, and added that Umaro Embalo is in the process of changing representatives, tying this to Catio Balde’s position.

BALL - First potential Champions League opponents already known (Benfica)

Finishing third in the league, Benfica advanced to the third qualifying round of the Champions League. This means that Luz’s team will have to go through two rounds to reach the group stage of the Millionaire Contest, similar to what they did last season.

And with most of the European championships already decided, the path the Eagles will have to take is beginning to be determined. For now, Benfica know they will enter the draw as a seed and have two opponents who could get lucky: Sturm Graz (Austria) and Union St. Louis. Giloise (Belgium).

According to the current situation, the Reds will avoid Dynamo Kyiv (who will play in the second qualifying round) and Rangers (who can go straight to the group stage if they win the Europa League). But a reunion between Roger Schmidt and PSV could take place.

The emblem of Eindhoven finished second in the Dutch Championship and also advances to the third qualifying round. However, the status of the Dutch top seed depends on the third place in the French championship (this can be Marseille, which is now in position, or Monaco, which is ahead), the position of Rangers or second-placed Denmark (at the time when Copenhagen is followed by Central Jutland).

See the table with the current situation:

Benfica (odds 61,000)
