Nuno Gomes received the silver badge as a member of Benfica (25 years old) and spoke about what that moment meant to him.
«It is with great pride that I come here to receive my badge. I feel at home, it’s a pleasure to be in Luz. I come to practically every game and I continue to suffer, it’s good to continue to feel the affection of the fans. I am proud of the work a friend and former teammate is doing for the club [Rui Costa]. I know it was one of life’s goals. Rui was not only born with the talent to play football, but also with the passion for Benfica. We didn’t talk about it, but I believe he had that ambition. Benfiquistas can rest assured, we know that at the head of the club there is a person who suffers a lot for Benfica and who will do everything for Benfica to continue to be successful», he told BTV.
