The departure of Enzo Fernandez for Chelsea was made in pain…
It will have been necessary to wait for the last moments of the winter transfer window but the soap opera Enzo Fernandez had the happy ending hoped for by the Argentine player. For the record sum of 121 million euros, the young world champion won his case and joined Chelsea.
Despite the big check received, Benfica still got it bad. Blame it on his attitude for several months. An attitude castigated by President Manuel Rui Costa, very severe with his former player.
“I respect his decision. I respect the fear of losing a big contract. But he didn’t show any commitment to Benfica. As a fan I didn’t want this player anymore, as a manager he was also no solution and couldn’t get into the dressing room anymore, he thundered in the columns Record. This is where I made the decision to sell it. Enzo was treated well here, from his arrival until his departure. I hoped it would give him the desire to fight for the title. But we want a team that is committed to the supporters. We have lost a great player, yes, but we are not going to mourn a player who does not want to be at Benfica. Here we only want players who respect Benfica. »
