Official statement


Information about the player Gabriel.

1 – Our player Gabriel presented the first sight-related complaints the day after Benfica-Famalicão match, at Estádio da Luz, for the Portuguese Cup.

2 – It was decided to do all the exams and tests recommended according to the clinical picture presented by the player and more serious scenarios are now excluded.

3 – Thus, Gabriel has left VI nerve palsy, with limited abduction, which conditions diplopia.

4 – This makes it impossible to determine a deadline for a return to full fitness as a top-level footballer.

5 – Remembering, however, that the most important thing is to ensure that there are no other risks and that normal day-to-day activity is not at stake.

6 – Gabriel will continue to present himself daily at Benfica Campus, to do the physical work that is deemed appropriate.
