Benfica have officially signed midfielder Luis Fariña to a five-year deal. The 22-year old, who is known for his pace is a product of the Racing Club de Avellaneda academy, graduating to the senior side in 2009/2010

In an official statement on Benfica’s website, the club describes Fariña as a ‘attacking midfielder who prefers to play on the left side of attack.’

“Quick, Luis Fariña likes to have the ball in his possession, while he still likes to score goals, he prefers to create opportunities for his teammates.”

Fariña spoke to Benfica TV on Wednesday night, expressing his excitement at joining the club.

“I know that Benfica is a very big club, and that means a lot to me because I know that they just do not sign any player. I am very proud to wear the jersey. I know that it is a big responsibility to be part of this club but at the same time its great to have so many supporters,” Fariña said.

“It is a club that has won everything in Portugal, and many other titles. I am very happy to wear the jersey and I hope that the history of the club will continue to grow and that I could win titles with Benfica.”
