Fernando Medina, Mayor of Lisbon, addressed the controversy surrounding his inclusion in the Honorary Committee of Luís Filipe Vieira.
«I was part of Vieira’s commission four years ago, as was the Prime Minister. And I don’t remember any news about that. I don’t see any kind of incompatibility, it has no influence on my institutional capacity or the way I perform my duties. I never hid that I’m a Benfica fan, ”he told TVI24.
«I am not from that generation of politicians who were all from the Academic. I’m from Benfica. That fact never prevented me from being totally impartial and impartial. If it was another application, or another club, would it be okay? ».
