Jorge Jesus explained why he decided to integrate Facundo Ferreyra into the Benfica squad, despite the fact that the Argentine striker was not part of the options.
«He was here when I arrived, he is a Benfica asset. At the moment it is not part of Benfica’s plans. I was a football player and I have to have professional respect for all athletes, not letting them work apart from the rest. For having this sensitivity I asked him to train with us, but not to think that he could be a player that would continue my idea », he clarified, in a press conference.
«He is a Benfica player and is inserted in a context of more intense and technical-tactical work. Even if he leaves, he will leave for the club that wants him with better conditions to show all the value he can have ”, stressed Jesus.
