The coach’s run at Benfica is highlighted by the renowned British magazine.
Bruno Lage is one of the highlights of this month’s World Soccer. The prestigious British magazine lapses praise for the Benfica coach and praise the work of Rui Vitória’s substitute over the past three months.
“The failure of José Mourinho’s hiring ended up being a blessing in disguise. The change under Bruno Lage was immediate and spectacular, both in terms of results and in the quality of the football practised,” it can be read in the publication, who also praised “a showy, attacking the football in contrast to its predecessor.”
In addition to the collective aspect, the prestigious magazine also highlights the ability of the coach to recover players such as Rafa, Gabriel, Samaris and Seferovic and to reinforce the bet on João Félix, who considers being a “brilliant teenager” the Swiss international “an admirable partnership“.
“He knows exactly what each player can do and what role they can play in order to get the most out of them. It was not surprising that he had integrated several players from the Seixal’s renewed academy into the first team.” “The sublime talent of João Félix makes the headlines, but Francisco Ferreira [Ferro], Florentino Luís and Gedson Fernandes are other promising young men.“
