Roger Schmidt: the future has already begun
"It's top, top, top!" These are Roger Schmidt's words, captured by BTV's report, and summarize the coach's first impressions about the quality of the resources and facilities available at Benfica Campus, where the team for 2022/23 will start to take shape as of June 27. "We will have to work very hard in pre-season to prepare ourselves for a long season", specified the Benfica coach, who confessed to be "very interested in the young players, in their development". "It's always great when clubs have players from the academy in the first team, it always gives them some new energy, some identification with the team", revealed Roger Schmidt.
