I am doing a thread about the history of the Spanish football and I found one of the most interesting stories in football's history, while I was doing a research about the performances of the Spanish clubs in Europe.
As you well know, you defeated Barcelona and Real Madrid in your 2 European Cups. I've read that Bella Guttmann was fired and he said his curse: "Benfica won't win an European Cup in 100 years".
I don't know how reliable is the story that I posted, since I found very few information in English or Spanish.
As the History of Football forum is new, perhaps some of you don't know it yet. I would appreciate your contribution in that thread about Benfica and Bella Guttmann. Personally, I'm very interested in this story and what really happened. Much better from a benfiquista point of view.
I know that the curse thing is a stupidity, I don't believe in these things. But the story is amazing anyway and I'd like to know what happened, the reasons of his words, why he was fired (or did he resigned?). Everything you can tell us about it, please tell us in this thread (link below).
Probably, it's a sad story for you guys, but it's still part of the story of your wonderful club.
Thanks in advance.
