More new faces for Benfica

SL Benfica have increased their squad with two more signings.

SL Benfica have increased the number of new faces at the Da Luz stadium this season to 20 with two more signings.

Just in time
Tiago Cardoso and Armando Sa are the latest players to join the Portuguese giants, both signing four-and-a-half-year contracts. The pair arrived from SC Braga just before the closure of the winter transfer window.

Sa stunned
Sa, a 26-year-old right-back from Mozambique, was stunned by the move. He admitted: “I’m still shaking and my feet aren't yet on the ground. I hope I can work well, do my best and win the coach’s confidence.”

Tiago ambitious
Ambitious midfield player Tiago added: “Three years ago I wouldn’t have thought about this, but now I’m here at the top I want to make the Portuguese national team.”
