For his first foray into European soccer, Freddy Adu certainly didn't pick the most stable club. Despite a succession of famous coaches -- Tomislav Ivic, Artur Jorge, Graeme Souness, Jupp Heynckes, Jose Mourinho, Giovanni Trapattoni and Ronald Koeman, among others -- it's been more than 15 years since a coach lasted two full seasons at Benfica. Adu's first coach, Fernando Santos, was gone after one league game, and his replacement, Spaniard Jose Antonio Camacho, quit on Sunday after Benfica was tied by the last-place team, Leiria. Former Portuguese great Fernando Chalana was promoted from assistant coach and will replace Camacho.
