Benfica Blog
Rui Costa has been elected as the 34th President of Benfica after receiving about 90% of the vote from more then 40,000 ballots cast in today's election. Costa has been the acting President of the club since the resignation of former club President in July and has now been given his own mandate for the next four years by the clubs members.

The 49 year old who came through Benfica's youth system appeared in 121 games with the club across all competitions through two stints in a career that included stops at Fiorentina and AC Milan. The Portuguese International was also capped 94 times by the national side in a long and glorious career that saw him collect numerous trophies including the 2002-03 Champions League title while at Milan.
