Throughout the history, there were many great players. Players more talented than Coluna, more gifted technically, faster or stronger but I've never seen any player who had such an importance for his team like Coluna had for Benfica. Maybe in some weaker teams where somebody stands out for quality, but in teams full of great players which Benfica in his time certainly was, I've never seen any player with such an importance for team success...

When he was absent, Benfica looked like mid table 3rd division team. With him they could beat everybody..Despite the fact he wasn't "the best in the world" in any part of the game but his leadership and all round ability in all parts of the pitch were out of common. Whatever Benfica needed: Attacking, defending, passing, scoring, marking, sliding, playmaking, covering, running., he'd do that. He was good in everything, you could put him on all positions, he'd still make his presence felt on the pitch...

REST IN PEACE Mario, one of the greatest team players in the history of the game...I could write easily in the history of all sports, not just football...

Eusebio and Mario, always together...No wonder they died both in such a short period of time, so sad for Benfica fans...

Stop the PSD copycats...
