Eternal Fernando Chalana
The Little Genius represented the Glorioso during 13 years as a player, winning more than a dozen titles (6 National Championships, 2 Portuguese Cups, 2 Super Cups and 3 Honor Cups) and played with an eagle on his chest in 410 matches and scored 64 goals. But more than the numbers, the greatest legacy that Chalana leaves to all football lovers are the bewildering dribbles, the magic with the ball glued to his foot, and his unique genius. The images will live on in history.
In respect to the memory of the former player and coach, SL Benfica's Board of Directors decided that the number 10 jersey will not be worn on the first team in the 2022/23 season. Thank you, Chalana!
