Statements by Roger Schmidt, Benfica coach, after the 2-1 victory in Vizela, in the fifth round of the championship
Trubin’s debut: “We already knew that he is a very good goalkeeper, but we gave him a few weeks to adapt to his teammates, to have confidence, to get in good shape and to get to know the goalkeeping coaches. Samu (Samuel Soares) He also did well. I think we have a very good situation in terms of goalkeeping. For Trubin, it was clear that it was very important to play, because, when you play, you are part of the club, of Benfica. It was a very good day for him” .
Start six games in 23 days with a win: “The victory is very good, as is the way we played. It gives us a lot of confidence. We played well before the international break, and now the first game was great. We are looking forward to the next few weeks.”
