The weekend of May 14 and 15 marked the end of the Portuguese professional leagues. In the A-Team, Benfica’s win in Paços de Ferreira took the win Excellent training, with his first-team debut and defending champion Henrique Araujo, to be elected ‘Man of the Match’. In your opinion, was it a special way to end the season?

The signal given by Team A in this final match of the tournament, using nine made-in-Benfica players, is the culmination of five months of a difficult transition, presumed with immense courage and a sense of mission by Nelson Verissimo and his technical team. I blink an eye at what the future could be. During the two years of the pandemic that has affected the lives of all of us, we have always been acutely aware and underlined by the dangers that threaten the development of our young players, so the focus of everyone who worked in football coaching during this period has not been to give up and put in place strategies to continue to ensure the best conditions for development inside and outside field. Back to normal, and now the season is over, it is with great pride and satisfaction that we see the dedication and hard work of everyone who accompanied these kids through these years (and more) paying off! Watch the A-Team debuts of Diego Moreira (U18) and Martim Neto (U19) and the opportunities afforded to Sandro Cruz and Thiago Gouvia recently, along with others who also grew up on the Benfica campus (Examples: Tomás Araújo, Morato, Diogo Gonçalves and Paulo Bernardo and Gonçalo Ramos), naturally makes us happy, reinforces our goal and makes sense to invest in the training that the club does. Henrique Araújo’s two goals that dictated the team’s victory and his ‘Man of the Match’ election were the icing on the cake that day. Upgrading players to an A-team is the biggest reward for those who work in football coaching at SL Benfica.

“Team B had a great season. He always tried to play an intense and positive way, with and without the ball, and he was the best attacking player in League Two”

Do you think many of these players, who are appearing now, will gain more space in Team A in the short term?

In a club with a history with Benfica, the demand and the responsibility to win in the A-Team is always at a maximum! And in order to win professional football match after match, year after year, in a sustainable way, it is essential that the players have quality and balance. It is said that talent has no age, but at the level at which Benfica are competing, it is important in my opinion to have a mix of youngsters with fewer youngsters, disrespectful of experience, to achieve the collective performance. These players, as I said, are “appearing now”, but they already have eight, nine or 10 years of youth career, with many dreams, in reconciling football and school, and some are far from their families … They have started their professional career, seizing their opportunities and try to seize it. The world today seems to be spinning so fast, and it’s not easy being young and up and living with so much exposure, in a society that pressures you to have it all for yesterday. It is necessary that they live this stage calmly, that they can enjoy every day, with the utmost concentration, but with pleasure and passion. In recent months, with Nélson Veríssimo, who has already accompanied and seen many youngsters like those transitioning to professional football, opportunities have naturally arisen for training, practice games and even calls with Team A. Communication and communication between the team and Futebol has facilitated Formação, in the various fields of work , assessing, monitoring and integrating players throughout this time. Each player is a different person and each player will have to find their way, in their own time, calmly. We will be here to challenge and support you.

Team B also finished Liga Portugal SABSEG by defeating FC Porto B and finished the competition in fifth place. Is this victory in the classics a reflection of the team’s global trajectory?

Beating the other B team in competition, in a difficult traditional field [apenas uma vitória em 2015], is always positive and attests to everyone’s commitment until the last minute. Team B had a great season, very consistent in terms of results, playing several games at the top of the table. He always tried to offer an intense and positive way to play, with and without the ball, even being the best attacking player in League Two. Going to watch a B team has always been synonymous with goals. In addition to the sporting performance objectives, the main objective of the B team was clearly achieved: the preparation and promotion of players for the A team of SL Benfica, and professional football in general. Competing to win League Two matches, using only young players against more experienced players, many of whom are from League One background, is a challenge and a very rich experience for your growth and development.
