Two former Spanish national team coaches top Benfica’s wish list as they seek to replace Jesualdo Ferreira, sacked on Tuesday.

Javier Clemente and his Spain successor, Jose Antonio Camacho, are both ‘resting’ and have been linked with the Benfica post.

Ferreira was dismissed after theclub’s shock defeat by lower division Gomdomar in the Portuguese cup last Sunday.

Camacho stepped down as coach of Spain afterthe quarter-final defeat on penalties by South Korea in the World Cup finals in June.
