The way they dignified the jersey and the prestige of Sport Lisboa e Benfica, I want to congratulate the entire board, technical staff and players involved in this extraordinary performance in the Youth League, which took us to the third final in the last seven seasons.
The spirit of mutual help and the effort with which they fight until the last moment are a matter of pride to all benfiquistas, and as young players, despite the loss, they deserve our fair recognition and encouragement.
