This Tuesday (24), Benfica guaranteed a spot in the Champions League group stage and, at the end of the match, coach Jorge Jesus celebrated the classification and gave a statement that could stir the Flamengo fan. The subject is defender David Luiz.
The future of the defender, who is currently without a club, is wide open. Red and black fans have been making a massive campaign for the defender to make a deal with the Brazilian club and seal his return to Brazil, but there was speculation that Benfica would also have tried to sign the player.
