I want to congratulate all the directors, coaching staff, and players involved in this brilliant campaign that has brought us today to the Youth League final, which will take place next Tuesday between Sport Lisboa e Benfica and Real Madrid.

It is important to highlight that this competition is the third final that Benfica has played in the last seven years, in a clear demonstration of the well known quality of the work carried out by our youth development, a fundamental pillar of our short, medium and long term strategy.

I wish the best of luck to the whole working group for the final match, in an event in which they have been giving prestige to Portuguese youth football.
