Benfica coach Jesus accepts Chelsea target Matic could leave

Benfica coach Jorge Jesus concedes they could lose Nemanja Matic this month.

The Serbia midfielder is a top target for former club Chelsea.

Jesus admitted he had no control over keeping his star player, saying: "The coach is here only to train the players.

"With these issues, I am always the last to know.

"We sell players all the time and in Portugal we have to live with this situation.

"If Matic goes, then I have to find another solution."
