Portuguese legend Eusebio has said that he is very much looking forward to the friendly match between Real Madrid and Benfica that will take place on July 27. He has also said that the Spanish club Real Madrid are the best team in the world right now. The team, which is managed by the former Chelsea manager José Mourinho, managed to lift the league title ahead of Barcelona – one of the best teams in the world. They are looking to win the Champions League title this time around and Eusebio believes that the manager has the players at his disposal in order to do so.
Real Madrid will be playing Benfica in a friendly match. This is one of their first pre-season friendly matches of the campaign. As a result, Real Madrid manager José Mourinho is not expected to risk a number of his high profile players, who have just returned to training after being granted an extended holiday following the end of the Euro 2012. Cristiano Ronaldo is one among the players and Eusebio was also in high praise of the Portuguese star by saying that he is the best player in the world right now because he has everything in his locker.
“I’m happy for Benfica supporters because they’ll get a chance to see the best team in the world in action at their stadium. I think it will be packed. It says it all that they are the current Spanish champions. They had a spectacular season and this year’s may be even better given the progress they are making. He is a fantastic player who had a tremendous campaign. He is an all-rounder. He’s got it all. He is very, very good,” said the Portuguese legend Eusebio on the official website of Real Madrid prior to the visit to the Portuguese club.
