Rising Serbia star Zivkovic, Benitez sign for Benfica


Lisbon (AFP) – Serbian international Andrija Zivkovic and Argentine winger Oscar Benitez have both signed five-year deals with Benfica, the reigning three-time Portuguese champions confirmed on Wednesday.

Zivkovic’s contract with Partizan Belgrade, the club where the player dubbed the ‘Serbian Messi’ began his career in 2013, expired at the end of last season.

Capped five times, the 19-year-old midfielder is considered a rising star of the Serbia national team after helping his country to gold in the U20 World Cup last year.

Benitez, 23, arrives from Argentine first division outfit Lanus for an undisclosed fee.
