    I prefer Ebuehi to Shehu and Aina in that right back position . I pray he goes to a club that will groom him better .

    He shouldn’t go to Benfica. That club is all over Portuguese media for its email scandals involving passive and active influence of the referees. Will they be punished? Probably not because the government supports them. This is why the Portuguese League is a huge joke. Benfica gets 0 points in the champions league yet somehow they are within a few points of FC Porto and sporting Lisbon. Shameful club.
