PListen after Jorge Jesus recalled Pep Guardiola’s praise for Benfica, in an interview with Brazilian SportTV, Rui Vitória was quick to recall that moment with a picture on social media, realizing the Spanish coach’s words did reference to one of the times he was at Benfica. .
The 67-year-old pointed to Guardiola’s remarks in 2017, regarding a Champions League ‘quarter-final’ game between Bayern Munich and Benfica in 2015/16, however, that season Rui Vitória was in charge of the red team, precisely when he took over from Jorge Jesus.
“I’m going to say a sentence that Guardiola said here a few years ago. He said it like this: Anyone who wants to know what it is to defend well, look at the Benfica team. Who was the coach? of Benfica? It was me”, declared Amadora’s trainer in the ‘Bem, Amigos’ program.
In this sense, the 52-year-old Portuguese coach tried to remember the moment he welcomed Pep Guadiola to the Allianz Arena, in a match that culminated in the 1-0 triumph of the Bavarians, before the game draw (2-2) in the second leg, in Luz.
