Reporter Park Jae-ho = Benfica manager Roger Schmidt (55) expressed his regret at giving Enzo Fernandez (22) to Chelsea.
Fernandez Enzo, the biggest player in the winter transfer market, finally wore a Chelsea uniform on the 2nd (Korean time). That too while recording the highest transfer fee of 120 million euros (about 160 billion won) in the history of the English Premier League (EPL). His contract is for eight years, until 2031.
Enzo’s transfer was not smooth. There was an astronomical buyout clause, and manager Schmidt didn’t want to send Enzo, a key midfielder. However, Chelsea made the transfer by putting out an astronomical ‘money bundle’ at the end of the transfer market.
Benfica won 3-0 in the away match against Aroca on the 1st. Enzo’s place was filled by Chiquiño, and he played well and contributed to the complete victory. 온라인카지노
After the game, coach Schmidt expressed regret about Enzo’s transfer, saying, “Benfica is much bigger than a single player. We just need a player who can play happily and passionately at Benfica.” He went on to lament, “If a player decides to leave and pays the buyout amount, there’s virtually nothing we can do about it.”
During the transfer process, manager Schmidt mentioned that Enzo would remain at Benfica. However, the decision was made at the last minute of the transfer market, and it seems that he felt disappointment and anger. “We have to accept this and move forward,” Schmidt said.
