The group of members of the red emblem asks that more action be taken by Benfica in the defense of its interests.
The « Serving Benfica » movement asks the direction of the emblem of Luz to take a « firm position » and defend its interests. In a statement stating that « cheating cannot win », that group of members states that Benfica « cannot resign and must assume, once and for all, its role in Portuguese football. »
The communiqué issued this Tuesday comes after the FC Porto-Arouca match on Sunday, the day on which the reds also issued a communiqué regarding the controversial game. Even so, « Servir o Benfica », led by Francisco Benítez, wants a stronger position to be taken and, to that end, proposes a series of measures, including the dissemination of communications between referees and VAR.
