Julian Weigl was replaced during the first part of the meeting with Vitória de Guimarães, when he already had yellow and when he could have seen the second (it was not Hugo Miguel’s understanding) and left dissatisfied, quickly moving away from Nélson Veríssimo, coach Benfica, when he went to meet him to greet him.
Later, on the personal account on Instagram, the 20 million euro German midfielder would say: «Thank you for all the messages but I was a little aggressive today [terça-feira] and it was the right decision to get me out of the field. »
However, this message comes with another from a fan who writes a long complementary text for the German and says that he is the best player in the Benfica team and that the replacement would only be justified if he was injured. In fact, Weigl received a lot of support on social media, as did Florentino, who can take advantage of Weigl̵
The Portuguese midfielder handed over the German, played well, finished an eight-month championship and was treated with pampering and affection by fans and beyond. Teammate Chiquinho wrote on Instagram: “My octopus, you deserve everything!”
