After the untimely death of Portugal and Benfica legend Eusebio, our CEO Duncan Revie paid this personal tribute to one of the all time greats and a close friend of the company.
“Words cannot express the sadness I feel at the loss of the great Eusebio. Having idolised his magnificent ability on the field, I was very privileged to get to know him over the past decade as a fabulous human being. I was proud to call him my friend and delighted when he agreed to become a Soccerex ambassador. He was a wonderful person and we have lost not only one of the greatest players of all time but also a great friend to all of football. His legend will live on and I think Ronaldo’s two goals dedicated to him last night and together with the tributes from the likes of Pele, Sir Bobby Charlton and Di Stefano – in fact from the whole football world – encapsulate how he mesmerised not just one but all generations.”
