Guilherme, the Benfica fan who received Gonçalo Ramos’ jersey, has died

The young supporter to whom Gonçalo Ramos gave the jersey after Ajax-Benfica last week has died.

Guilherme was 16 years old, lived in Belgium and was battling an oncological disease. He had a dream of returning, after a few years, to attend a Benfica match at the Estádio da Luz, having made this design a reality at the end of February thanks to an initiative by the Benfica Foundation.

On this day of February 27, he visited the club’s museum, watched Benfica-V. Guimarães and met Darwin, Rafa, Gonçalo Ramos and Nélson Veríssimo.

This Monday evening, Gonçalo Ramos reacted to the sad news. “Rest in peace, Guilherme,” wrote the Benfica forward on social media.

To the family and friends of Guilherme, more soccer send his sincere condolences.
