Jorge Jesus meets with President to discuss reinforcements

Benfica Blog
New Benfica skipper Jorge Jesus is unhappy with the lack of acquisitions by club President Luis Filipe Vieira as was promised to him for returning to manage the club. Jesus met with Vieiria, Rui Costa and Tiago Pinto yesterday to discuss the status of reinforcements as he presses for more attacking options to arrive. With just over two weeks remaining before Benfica will play their one leg Champions League qualifier against either PAOK, AZ Alkmaar or Rapid Vienna, Jesus wants to have these group of players as options as the club tries to qualify for the group stage of the tournament. Benfica have acquired Everton (Gremio), Gilberto (Fluminense), Luca Waldschmidt (Freiburg), Jan Vertonghen (Free Agent), Helton Leite (Boavista) and Pedrinho (Corinthians) for this season but Jesus is expecting another three to four additions before the transfer window closes.
