Benfica duo slam ‘lies’ surrounding struggling club on eve of Europa League clash with Arsenal

Manager Jorge Jesus’ position at the club is under serious pressure (Picture: Getty Images)

Benfica boss Jorge Jesus and star man Pizzi have both hit out at speculation surrounding the manager?s future at the club ahead of Thursday?s Europa League clash with Arsenal.

The Portuguese giants have endured a difficult season and only sit in fourth place in the league table, 15 points adrift of leaders Sporting, while they gave up an away goal in their 1-1 draw with Arsenal in the first leg of their last-32 clash.

There were claims in the Portuguese press that Jesus had been asked to step down by club president Luis Filipe Vieira at a meeting on Tuesday, but refused to do so.

The Benfica boss was questioned about the speculation at his pre-match press conference before taking on Arsenal and refuted the claims, while midfielder Pizzi insists the players are still behind their under-pressure coach.

?You write, Benfica sells, Jesus sells a lot. I know my responsibility and that of the players, which is zero. They didn?t give any more because they couldn?t,? said Jesus.

?Now on TV, Benfica fans who attack us every day, do not give a word of comfort, constantly questioning players, coach, president. But is he to blame for this"

?If there are other things, I neither know nor want to know. I know about football. And I did not fail in this matter and I rarely fail.

?Rui Costa, me, and the president met yesterday, in fact we?re constantly talking about how to get out of this crisis.

?We believe a lot in what we can do, knowing that it is difficult, but we do not throw the towel on the floor.?

Pizzi backed up his manager, adding: ?We fully trust the methods.

?Battles, fights are created, to see who?s to blame, because the group is no longer with the coach and I don?t know what? everything is lies.

?From the first moment we are together, we?re not doing things as we should be doing, we could and should be better in the league taking into account the greatness of the club, but we?re very united and together to give back to this. All lies. Players, technical team and staff are paddling to win titles.?
