Luís Filipe Vieira revealed this Monday that Bruno Lage made his place available at the end of Benfica's defeat by Marítimo, for the 29th round of the League.
«Don't let Benfica return a little bit. Doing what we have done in the past 20 years is very difficult. I'm the one to blame. In the meantime I want to tell you that our coach Bruno Lage addressed me with a great lift and said to me: ‘President, my seat is available, I understand that at this moment things are not good for Benfica. It does not mean that I am not able to turn around. It seems like everyone wants me to leave. And if you accept, from tomorrow I will not be coach of Benfica. ’»
