Benfica Blog
Former Benfica winger Angel Di Maria gave an interview with UEFA's official website recently about his career and made sure to give his first European club Benfica major credit for becoming the player that he is today. Angel Di Maria joined Benfica from Rosario during the summer of 2007 for €8M after winning the World Cup U20 in Canada with Argentina. Di Maria told UEFA's website that Benfica gave him everything in his time with the club and that it is like his first home after making the leap from South America to Europe. Di Maria spent three seasons with Benfica, winning one league title, two league cups and appeared in 118 games across all competitions. Di Maria scored 15 goals while setting up 28 before departing to Real Madrid in the summer of 2010 for a then club record transfer fee of €33M. Di Maria also credited Benfica for earning his first call up to the Argentinian National side in September 2008 and that the club will always be important to him and his family.
