“Now those who declared the “Golden Whistle” the loudest scandal in Portuguese football are involved” – Benfica



"Now those who declared the "Golden Whistle" the loudest scandal in Portuguese football are involved" - Benfica

Several times during the session that took place this morning at the Campus da Justiça, Carlos Duarte compared the case to golden whistle email several times. The former referee, also a lawyer, was out of his depth when he was invited to speak about Ferreira Nunez’s closeness to Benfica, as well as the connection between Joao Pinheiro, Nuno Cabral and Paulo Gonçalves. “It is outrageous because we have publicly witnessed the impact that Apito Dourado has had on refereeing. We all know what people and clubs like Benfica said. This was a particular surprise and surprise, since we were sure that the distribution of emails, a behavior that we condemned and rejected.

I am sure that this is a reason for disciplinary sanctions, and from an ethical point of view, there are no conditions for refereeing the matches of Benfica and some other clubs. Clubitis cannot harm the task of the agents.”

The judge later complained about the score he had received, which was sent back to Nuno Cabral. He forwarded the above email to Paulo Gonçalves, the Eagles’ former legal adviser. Francisco J. Márquez hypothesized that this email exchange was intended to influence the Eagles so that the referee’s score could be improved.
