The information provided by A BOLA in last Thursday’s edition caught Javi García off guard. The current center of Boavista, and with a past of 132 games for Benfica, is appointed to the technical structure of the eagles, which will be led by the German Roger Schmidt.
“I saw it in the newspaper. All I know is from what I’ve read. I do not know anything. I was surprised. Nobody from Benfica spoke to me», confessed the Panthers player, in statements to TSF.
Javi García has one more year of connection to Boavista, a relationship that will have to be canceled in order to move to Luz in a transfer that will mean abandoning his playing career, marked by the conquests of a Portuguese League (Benfica), a Spanish League (Real Madrid), an English league (Manchester City), a Russian league (Zenit) and two caps for Spain.
