"Benfica is, in fact, a big club, with a huge history. I had good talks with Rui Costa, with the President [Luís Filipe Vieira] and with Tiago Pinto, and I felt that they really wanted me to come to Benfica. I had a special feeling during those talks and it was clear to me that I wanted this move. I also know the atmosphere experienced at the Stadium [Estádio da Luz], I played here with Borussia Dortmund, the supporters are great and I'm looking forward to playing for them", he claimed.
In the statements given to BTV, Weigl confessed to having asked Axel Witsel and the Portuguese international Raphael Guerreiro about Benfica.
"Yes, first I spoke with Witsel, and I also spoke with Raphael Guerreiro, who didn't play here, but who also likes the Club very much. I've only heard good things. It was good for me to know that other people have the same feeling as me", revealed the midfielder.
