Two years of Rui Costa in the presidency of Benfica

Rui Costa completes this Tuesday two years as president of Benfica since he took office on October 10, 2021. Since the beginning of his mandate, Rui Costa has won more than 50 senior titles (between football and the five main indoor sports), with emphasis on the beginning of the 2023/24 season, where the Eagles won all (12) official national trophies in which they have participated to date.

The modernization of the Estádio da Luz and the explanations of the movements in the transfer market have also become trademarks of the 34th president of Benfica.

This Tuesday, the day of the round mark as the leader of the Reds, Rui Costa was in Seixal for the 4th edition of the ‘Kick-off youth football’, where he called for the “growth” of this specific area of Benfica.

We all have the responsibility to grow our training”, highlighted Rui Costa, in front of an audience of close to 150 people from the structure and staff of the training. Pedro Mil-Homens, general director of the formation, quoted the president of the Eagles, in statements to the club’s channel.

At Benfica there are no credits. The players who made it to the first team are already in the past, now we must look to the future“, said the manager.
