Rui Costa guarantees: ‘Seixal will continue to be our base for many, many years’ – Benfica

Benfica president stresses club will stay on south bank, despite plans to move forward with Cidade Benfica

Rui Costa assured that Benfica would continue to be based in Seixal, despite the club’s intention to go ahead with the construction of Cidade Benfica, a project which, as Record revealed, will be born on the north bank of the Tagus. “Although there has been a lot of talk about Cidade Benfica, a project that we will also carry out, this football base here in Seixal is our base and will continue to be for many, many years. We have no reason to be dissatisfied with the relationship between the parties”, said the president incarnate during the tribute, promoted by the municipality of Seixal, to the youth team that won the Youth League. “Thank you for this more than a beautiful tribute to our heroes from Nyon, who deserve it. A job that has been going on since 2006. We are from Lisbon but it is in Seixal that we have our base. It is here that, since 2006 we started to develop a project that led us to this achievement. Thanking the municipality for their support. We have also been an asset to the municipality. We are very proud to be here. Thanks again to all those who contributed, since the opening of the training center, to bring us here today. From the construction to all the directors, coaches who contributed to the evolution, to those who participated in the first three finals and to all the young athletes who strive daily,” added Rui Costa.


“The investment in training and in the Seixal Internship Center has been a successful option that will remain and can be expanded”

As he had done during the reception at the town hall of Lisbon, the leader of the eagles recalled that this achievement of the Youth League is not an end in itself, but the beginning of a stage that we expects success for these young people from the main team: “This victory is above all these young players, to whom I wish them the best. It was not the end of their career but the beginning, knowing that this whole project is to have more young players in the first team, as we have had over the years and in other teams in Europe. To train to have more and more of them. To believe in what “is the club and the work that is done within the facilities. We are proud to be here and this is where we will continue to work and win.”

Per record
