BENFICA IN CHAOS: Players rebelled against the "terrorist" Jesus!

Just as the team delighted the public with the game in the Champions League against such an opponent as Barcelona, which is not doing well this season, Benfica found themselves in complete chaos due to the conflict between coach Jesus and the players!

Portuguese media are buzzing that the atmosphere between the two sides is catastrophic and that the football players are on the verge of going nuts, which they have already told the club’s management.

Namely, the players resent the experienced Jesus for his behavior, especially towards the younger players. They think that the coach is constantly harassing and harassing them and they are tired of his terror.

That is why the most experienced players, led by Nicolas Otamendi, went to a meeting with the top of Benfica, who were told that they would not be able to do that again.

Either Jesus will soon be packing his suitcases, or some players will be looking for a new environment in January, led by the aforementioned Otamendi.

As proof of the growing tension, the Portuguese media state that the player Gilberto quarreled in public with the coach during the Champions League match with Bayern when he said to him: “Calm down, you fucker” ?!

He is not the only one. In the same game, Brazilian central-back Lucas Verissimo lost his temper and angrily scolded the coach “to calm down” when Jesus criticized him for losing the ball after pressing Bayern.

The problems are also reflected in the form of the team that lost to Portimonense (0: 1) after the victory over Barcelona in the Champions League in the next championship match, then in the overtime knocked out the weak Trofense in the Portuguese Cup.

This was followed by a debacle against Bayern at home in the Champions League (0: 4), then a close victory in the championship over the outsider Wiesel (1: 0) and then a series of three matches without a victory.

In the League Cup, Benfica played 3: 3 against Vitoria Guimaraes, then rallied again in the championship against Estoril (1: 1) to be followed by the debacle in Munich (2: 5).

On the match against Victoria Guimaraes, the new cash cow of the club, Darwin Nunez publicly argued with Jesus, who did not spare words addressed to the coach.

Even the experienced representative of Portugal, Rafa Silva, publicly said that he was not satisfied with the coach’s methods… It looks like Jesus will have to leave soon after the chaos he has created lately.
