We’re sure by now you’re getting a bit bored of transfer stories. So are we.
So praise the lord for AEK Athens and Benfica, who have stopped selling each other players and are now exclusively in eagles.
Yep, that’s right. Eagles.
AEK are opening their brand spanking new 31,00-seater Agia Sophia Stadium soon.
What better way to announce the new structure than to unveil it along side an eagle? AEK president Dimitris Melissanidis clearly agrees.
The 66-year-old has gone to Benfica to ask to borrow their famous eagle, according to Record.
AEK carry the symbol of two eagles on their badge, symbolising the Byzantine Empire.
So it’s only natural they looked to Benfica, who fly an eagle around the stadium before games, for a bald headed bird.
Unfortunately Benfica denied their request for a short-term loan move.
That’s probably for the best as far as PETA are concerned.
