Jorge Jesus. “Giving up is not our way”


The Benfica coach lamented the lack of effectiveness and confirmed that they are “frustrated” after the 1-1 draw against Moreirense.

“We had a lot of chances to score and we left frustrated. Benfica returned today to show that it is going up, played a good game during the 90 minutes, with several situations to score ”, said Jorge Jesus (JJ).

Speaking to Sporttv, the red technician considers that his team suffered “the tie in a penalty that was born from an easy situation to control”. “We are suffering goals with individual failures very easily and that obviously influences the team afterwards. There was nothing to justify the opponent reaching a draw, we created this situation ”.

Jesus adds that, in the second half, Benfica failed to score the second goal, “but always with quality of play and trying everywhere to pierce a structure of five defenses that made it difficult for us”.

“It was important to continue on the path of victories but we got in the way so that the outcome was this”, he said.

Regarding the future in the championship, JJ said: “Giving up is not our way, the team has shown signs of improvement from game to game, we are more intense and faster. Obviously we have to look game by game. The first place is getting further and further away but in football everything changes quickly. ”

Benfica drew 1-1 in Moreira de Cónegos, the fourth straight draw away from home, and could be 13 points late for leader Sporting.

Seferovic scored for Benfica and Yan for Moreirense.
