Following the news of Benfica’s alleged enticement of Edgar Costa, Rui Pinto, creator of Football Leaks, guaranteed on social media that Luís Filipe Vieira, former president of the club at Luz, “devised a scheme” that ended up taking “millions to the pockets of a very restricted group of trusted agents”, including Miguel Pinho, denounced by the Marítimo player.
“For years, Luís Filipe Vieira devised a scheme that diverted more than 15 million euros from Benfica’s formation into the pockets of a very restricted group of agents of his trust, with emphasis on Miguel Pinho. “, wrote Rui Pinto on Twitter.
It is recalled that the newspaper ‘Expresso’ revealed yesterday that Edgar Costa confessed in 2019 to prosecutor Andrea Marques that the businessman made him an “offer of 30 thousand euros” if he was willing “to play badly and not to shoot on goal” in a game against Benfica in the 2015/16 season. He would also have been offered a better contract if he facilitated this meeting in front of the incarnates.
