Statements by Jorge Jesus, Benfica coach, after the victory against Estrela da Amadora (4-0) in the round of 16 of the Portuguese Cup.
“In addition to the victory, it was also a special day for me. I returned to my homeland and where I graduated as a sportsman.
Benfica made things easy and did everything so that there were no surprises. After scoring first, things became easier with goals. It was a positive night. It is another step that we have taken forward and towards the goal of reaching the final of the Portuguese Cup. The coach of FC Porto is the one who knows how his team is doing physically. I cannot answer about that.
Todibo came from a complicated injury. He started working with us a month ago. He is a young player, he is 21 years old, he is strong in the aerial game. Estrela da Amadora, with all due respect, did not put him as much to the test as he could put another opponent.
I want to congratulate all the people who managed to raise Estrela da Amadora, with good working conditions for the division where it is. He has training football again. In this region there are many kids with a lot of quality. I hope Estrela da Amadora will move up to be here to celebrate.
I know André Geraldes and his skills well. Congratulations to those who are ahead of Estrela da Amadora.
There is no coach who pulls the ears of the players. Coaches instruct players to correct and animate the game. Pedrinho is a player who hasn’t had much training time. He has a lot of talent and when he is physically well he is a player who will help us a lot. ”
