Yaremchuk: ‘Teams facing Benfica are playing with 11 players in the box’ – Benfica

The Ukrainian striker recalled his time at Luz and the ‘important goals’ he scored

Roman Yaremchuk said goodbye to Benfica in the final days of the market and returned to Belgium, where he will now play for Club Brugge. During the presentation of the Belgian emblem, the Ukrainian striker spoke about the Luz club and the pressure he felt. “Benfica are really a big club in the world. You feel it when you are at the club. You feel a lot of pressure from the fans and the coaches. The teams that face Benfica play with 11 players in the box. That’s difficult to find space. I had a good time there and I scored important goals. It was a good experience for me”, underlined the player who did not wear the jersey of the Reds than in the 2021/22 and early 2022/23 season. “Scoring at Anfield, a special place, is an occasion I will never forget,” he added. In all, Yaremchuk has scored nine goals in 47 official matches. He now hopes to help Club Brugge win trophies.

“I came to Brugge because I want to win titles. I always want to be at my best level, I want to play the Champions League and score goals,” said the 26-year-old who, before joining Luz, was playing for Gentile.
