Have u ever imagined why Benfica keeps losing d final of successive european cup finals? It even Lost Europa Losers’ League final ystrdy. Why? It’s jinxed. It’s under a curse.
After the 1962 European Cup Final, Guttmann (Benfica coach) approached the Benfica board of directors and asked for a pay rise. It was rumoured they had promised him a pay rise if he could achieve success with them. He’s earlier won d portugese league with Porto,overcoming Benfica’s 5 point lead. He later “ported” to Benfica. He won 2 Portugese league trophies and two European Champions trophies.
However despite the success he had brought the club,his request for a pay rise was turned down. On leaving Benfica, Guttman allegedly cursed the club, declaring “Not in a hundred years from now will Benfica ever be European champion”. Benfica have gone on to lose all eight of their subsequent European finals, including five European Cup finals (1963, 1965, 1968, 1988, and 1990), and three UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League finals (1983, 2013 and 2014).
Before the 1990 final, which was played in Vienna, where Guttmann was buried, Eusébio even prayed at his grave and asked for the curse to be broken. Benfica still lost that match and subsequent finals after that.
Disregard d power of curses to ur peril !
Do u think curses don’t work in real life?
