Chiquinho earning the trust of Schmidt

Benfica Blog
The sale of Enzo Fernandez to Chelsea on the last day of the transfer window left a big hole in Benfica's midfield when the club failed to add a replacement for the talented Argentinian but Benfica manager Roger Schmidt decided to place his trust in current club member Chiquinho and so far that trust has paid dividends for the club.

Chiquinho has become a regular member of the starting XI since the departure of Enzo and for a midfielder that had seen little to no playing time with the club over the past two seasons, it is a major accomplishment for the 27 year old who has been given a chance to see what he can do by the German manager.

Schmidt recently complimented Chiquinho's game since moving into a regular role and said that the midfielder is very strong on the ball, while being able to control the game and covers a lot of the field with his runs. Schmidt is counting on Chiquinho to get better and better as he enjoys a regular run of play.
