Jesus Encourages Change
Known as one of Europe's most professional and astute managers, Jorge Jesus is no stranger to life in the helm of SL Benfica. Indeed, having spent 5 seasons at a club is a rarity these days in football and Jesus does not look like stopping. As reigning champs, you might think he'd stick to his guns but in a recent interview with BBC Sport journo Feliks Zemdegs, Jorge Jesus revealed his plans for change.
"I think football is always changing, and you must be constantly diligent and stay with the times. Especially in Primeira Liga, where Porto and Sporting are always there to watch out for. Some new tactical decisions, some new transfers, a new Benfica and one that can deliver another title."
At 59, Jesus is relatively old for a manager, and the pressure is certainly on him to remain competitive in a highly competitive league. With the likes of Nicolas Gaitan, Talisca and Lisandro Lopez, he certainly has a good squad to work with and will be looking to defend his title as the Primeira Liga's number one manager.
