At 26, Chishkala sees the renewal as a great privilege, assuming the responsibility of representing Benfica. "It's not easy, I think everyone already knows that, but I like it when it's hard", stressed the Russian international.
"I am a benfiquista, and to continue playing here is very important for me. I joined this club to win, I haven't done it yet, it's hard, but I remain focused on that goal. I want to continue playing here. I am happy", claimed Chishkala to BTV.
"For the future? Just winning! That's the first thing. We will work harder and give everything we have, as we have always done. I will give everything I have in every match. We want to win titles", said the athlete, who has scored 30 goals in the 37 matches played so far this season.
