CC. What did you enjoy the most about your time at Benfica?
CL. I found personally that the most enjoyable aspect of my time with Benfica was the opportunity to train 8 times a week as well as play 2 games a week. We also had the opportunity to train and eat at the Caixa Futebol Campus which was an eye opening experience into the life of professional footballers.
