Rio – Jorge Jesus’ phase at Benfica is not the best, and the club stumbled again in the Portuguese Championship after drawing 0-0 with Farense, away from home. With the result, Clube da Luz is now 15 points behind the leader Sporting. This is the team’s worst campaign since the 2007/2008 season.
Pressured in office, Jorge Jesus was asked if after the tie he would be thinking of quitting. The coach responded briefly, but followed up on the response.
“No … Each game has a different story. It is true that we are all those points from the first place, but it is also true that the team creates immense goal opportunities,” said Jorge Jesus.
The former Flamengo coach also admitted that winning the title is a very unlikely feat for this season.
“It is not a mirage (the title), but it is getting more and more difficult. It would not be a mirage if we achieved our victories. What can we do? It is to go to work, wait for the team to be calmer and hope that it can do that for who works. “, he said.
