Loris Benito Souto (born 7 January 1992) is a Swiss professional footballer who plays as a defender for BSC Young Boys.

Benito was born in Aarau, Switzerland. A product of local FC Aarau youth ranks, Benito made his professional debut on 1 November 2009, age 17, under then coach, Martin Andermatt. His performances led to a move in 2012 to FC Zürich.

On 10 March 2013, in an away match against FC Thun, Benito was bitten on the finger by a beech marten he had caught after it invaded the pitch.

After solid performances in the Swiss league, news started about a potential move abroad. On 22 June 2014, Benito signed a five-year deal with Portuguese champions Benfica for an unconfirmed fee of around €2.5 million.

On 18 October 2014, Benito made his debut for Benfica in a win at S.C. Covilhã (2–3) in the third round of Taça de Portugal. On 6 December 2014, he debuted in Primeira Liga in a home win (3–0) against Belenenses.

On 22 February 2015, Benito debuted for Benfica B against Oriental in Segunda Liga.

On 23 June 2015, he returned to Swiss football, signing a four-year contract with BSC Young Boys. His first two seasons back in Switzerland have been almost on the sidelines with injuries including a metatarsal fracture and torn ligaments in his knee.

Personal life
He is the nephew of Ivan Benito.
