Benfica boss Jorge Jesus aims at Manchester City in Ruben Dias farewell

Benfica boss Jorge Jesus aims at Manchester City in Ruben Dias farewell. He joins City on a six-year deal after completing £64million move.

Benfica boss Jorge Jesus has savagely taken aim at Manchester City and their history by telling Ruben Dias he is joining a ‘smaller club’.

Jesus, who is frank and a straight-talker, made the not-so-subtle dig as Dias made a tearful farewell to his Benfica team-mates ahead of his £64million move to the Etihad.

As the Benfica squad sat around the dressing room, Jesus took the moment to praise the 23-year-old before having a pop at his new club.

Jesus said: ‘Ruben is having a send off, not only for what the team has accomplished, but for he game [2-0 win over Moreirense] he’s played, too.

‘He was the captain, scored a goal so everything was brilliant. His future looks brilliant too, we all believe that.

‘The life of a footballer is a bit like this, you’re leaving a great club [Benfica], bigger than City, which is only smaller financially. And that’s what makes the difference, the rest with with you.’
