Norberto Alves


Norberto Alves (Benfica coach): “It was a very physical game, set in a very adverse environment, and completely packed with Limoges support. There were several moments. We started very well and according to our game plan, we didn’t let them run and tried, despite being a very physical team, to control the rebound. We managed to do it, but then they started to impose themselves and move on. In the second half we didn’t let them slip, we raised doubts about what could happen. We knew that if we managed to play at the end they would feel pressure. The team had an incredible personality and we defended in an extraordinary way. Dedicate this win to all Benfica fans! We won at home with a team that was already European champion and won more than 11 national titles in France. It is not easy to do what the boys did today. I am so proud of them, they knew how to team up and unite with each other in the horrible environment that was here today. I thank the Benfica fans who were at the stand.”
