Benfica gave African Witchdoctor €150,000 to win Champions League


Benfica are currently in the midst of a raging scandal in Portugal over an alleged cash payment to a witch doctor in a desperate bid to win the Uefa Champions League.

Pedro Guerra, Benfica executive, reportedly contracted a Guinea-Bis­sau witch doctor, Dr Armando Nhaga to prepare his magic ahead of Benfi­ca’s big Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund back in February.

FC Porto’s communications direc­tor, Francisco Marques, according to a report, claimed to have seen an email exchange between Benfica execu­tive Pedro Guerra and Carlos Deus Pereira, the for­mer president of the LPFP

(The Portu­guese equiv­alent of the League board) dur­ing which the latter provided the former with ‘con­tent’ from the president of the Portuguese Foot­ball Federation Fernando Gomes’ text messages.

Marques also disclosed that an email was sent by Guerra “with the endorsement” of Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira to a Dr Armando Nhaga of the National Police Com­mission of Guinea-Bissau which ap­pears to reveal that the Eagles spent an awful lot of money procuring what can only be described as ‘witchcraft’.

According to the report, Dr Nha­ga’s price list was as follows: €5,000 for victory in the Super Cup, €100,000 for victory in the Championship, €10,000 for a win in every Champions League group stage and €30,000 for every knockout game in the Champions League.

Also contained in the list are €1,000 for victory in each match of the Portuguese Cup or League Cup and €5,000 for a win in the Portuguese Cup final or League Cup final.

However, a few days later Benfica got spanked 4-0 by Dort­mund, prompting Presi­dent Vieira to send anoth­er email to Dr Nhaga to ask what had gone wrong.

Nhaga duly replied, ex­plaining that his sorcery had failed because he wasn’t given enough time to pre­pare properly.
