Verissimo appointed Benfica boss until the end of the season
Nelson Verissimo will end the season in charge of Benfica. The Lisbon side confirmed it on Tuesday with a statement on their website.
The until interim boss was put in charge of the team after the resignation of Bruno Lage. He left the club because of the bad results.
Verissimo will lead the side for the remaining league matches. They are currently second, 6 points behind Porto who are top.
What also seems clear us that he will not be in charge next season. Several names have been linked with the post. Jorge Jesus is one of the people who have been linked most with Benfica.
