As a football fan not only do I love the game but I love the weird things that come out of it. One such thing is the Curse of Bela Guttman and Benfica (explained excellently in this article on this great site Football TImes)
At one stage Benfica were the best side in the World with the great Eusebio and with Bela Guttman at the helm. Guttman won the European Cup and then asked the board for a payrise which he was refused. He then placed a curse on the club saying they would not be European Champions for a 100 years, and to date they haven't.
They have lost 8 European finals since then with some believing that the curse is indeed real. Eusebio even visited the burial site of Guttman prior to the 1990 final begging for the curse to be lifted. It wasn't.
Hence my challenge is to make Benfica great again.
