    Chelsea’s Enzo Fernandez: “I’ll always feel grateful to Benfica”

    Enzo Fernandez had a fleeting spell at Benfica but the Argentine player is very fond of the Portuguese club. The Chelsea midfielder has thanked the club for the opportunities given to him during his time in Portugal.

    Enzo Fernandez ended his brief spell at Benfica last January. The midfielder signed for the Portuguese side after playing for River Plate.

    However, he could only play in Portugal for half a season as his good performances attracted the attention of Chelsea. The English club signed him for 121 million euros in the January 2023 transfer window.

    But the Argentina international is very grateful for all that Benfica have given him and spoke about his former club on the Chelsea website: “That’s changed my life. I’ll always feel grateful to Benfica. They’ve opened the doors of Europe to me. I feel very thankful for what the club’s done for me, with the directors, with my teammates.

    They’ve put in a lot of trust in me. Not to mention the technical staff, who have given me loads of support and love ever since I landed there. Now I’m here, playing for Chelsea, and I feel equally grateful for the confidence they put in me. They’re great, and I’m happy,” he added.

    “Moving from Argentina to Europe was a huge change for me and for my family. It was an abrupt change for me and for my family but I always tried to give my best to keep learning and evolving as a player,” Enzo Fernandez said.
