Salvio featured in the starting line-up in presentation match of SL Benfica, 2019/20 version. The Argentine played as a full-back and put in a good performance during the 71 minutes he was on the pitch. After the match against the Anderlecht, he spoke in the mixed zone.

“We did a good match and deserved another result. But the most important thing in this stage is the group's preparation. This was the first match after the holidays and, despite the defeat, I think the team played well. It's racking up minutes, improve every day so when the real competition starts, we'll be ready”, he analyzed.

The match also served to pay tribute to Jonas… and Salvio praised the number 10 jersey: "Jonas, besides being a good player and hardly anyone scoring as many goals as him, he's an incredible person, he made a player grow... He knows I like him very much and we're going to miss you so much".

Are you completely focused on the Club?

"I'm focused here, on the team, and everyone at Benfica knows what I want. I've already told the president, the coach, everyone, I'm 100 percent at Benfica", he claimed.
