Another denial by Benfica, about the accusations made by the newspaper Expresso.
“Sport Lisboa e Benfica strongly denies the false news, based on false, truncated or misleading emails, published today by the newspaper” Expresso “under the title on the cover -” Benfica helps delegate who “saved” Nuno Gomes. ”
All this information does not quite correspond to the truth and if the Journal and the journalist who wrote the news fulfilled their duty to investigate the facts, they would easily prove that the information on which it is based does not correspond to the reality, as it is easily proved and demonstrated.
The Disciplinary Committee of the League, then chaired by Professor Ricardo Costa, following the match referred to in the news (Sport Lisboa and Benfica – Nacional), related to the sports season (2008/2009) applied to Nuno Gomes a disciplinary sanction of 2 matches suspension and a fine of 1,000 euros and to Paulo Gonçalves the disciplinary sanction of 45 days suspension and 1,250.00 euros fine.
Facts that prove the lie of the news and which inexorably demonstrate that the correspondence stolen from Sport Lisboa e Benfica has been abusively used, falsified and misrepresented.
This proves the defamatory campaign and threatening the good name and image of Sport Lisboa e Benfica, which in its own venue will be object of due penalty and repair.
Sport Lisboa e Benfica regrets and can not fail to express its amazement, for the lack of rigor with which the newspaper “Expresso” has been publishing news based on information of criminal origin, false and that as it is shown are based in emails that are denied by reality itself. “
