Benfica renew Florentino Luis until 2024
The midfielder is one of Benfica's young promises so the Portuguese club have wanted to give him a long term deal. This prevents other clubs from trying to sign him.
"I look at my training with lots of pride because it was a great season. I have the fortune to have an excellent environment with coaches and teammates which have helped me to evolve in every training session and game to reach where I am now," Florentino Luis stated.
The player was in the Benfica B team for two and half seasons before getting promoted to the first team. He made his debut as a professional on 11th September 2016 when he was just 17 years old. Two years later, he scored his first goal.
"To be honest, I wasn't expecting it. I have to thank the coaching staff for this opportunity which they are offering me. I started on the bench knowing that in the second half of the season I would be on the pitch. The feeling is irreplaceable," the footballer concluded.
