Read the statement in full:
“A modification of the statute is fundamental to the future of Sport Lisboa e Benfica. I have always advocated for a change that would introduce more transparency, democracy and a modern operating model, yet true to our union traditions. I have been working with a group of members on changing the proposed regulations. In the meantime, the club’s board of directors has also expressed its willingness to move forward with the bylaws review process.The bylaws review deserves a thorough, smooth and timely process of discussion and approval to the members’ knowledge.Out of unity and in the interest of the club, we have unanimously decided to discontinue our work together.
As of today, we provide the future committee with all the work done, which includes in-depth consideration of the club’s articles of association and general regulations. I thank Antonio Bajao Felix, Joao Loreiro, Carlos Berdigao, Manuel Santos Vitor, Luis Pedro Duarte and Thiago Almeida for their willingness and commitment. I hope that the Bylaws Review Committee will conduct its work independently and critically and that the future project will be based on constructive discussion among all partners. I am convinced that agreeing to renew the laws would be a source of pride for the Benfica family and a step towards turning the page, building a more modern Benfica that would be more faithful to its union and democratic principles.”
