Statements by Ivo Vieira, coach of Gil Vicente, after the draw against Vizela (2-2), in a game of the 4th round of the Primeira Liga, which took place on Monday, in Vizela.
“I want to value the show that was seen here, those who came here experienced great emotions, with a very good atmosphere on the part of the fans, well done to the gilistas who came here to support.
We had a very good 40 minutes, in a very difficult field, but we turned that difficulty in our favor, we almost always cleared that pressure and, in the last third, we scored two goals. When we had the game practically under control, we almost left the game in the final five minutes of the first half and made Vizela grow. That took away our confidence and, at half-time, I asked us to repeat the first 30/40 minutes. We can’t just turn off those five minutes. We drew, we scored a point, that’s what happened. The second half was more broken, we tried to take the lead again, but we couldn’t.
[Dois pontos perdidos?] I have to respect the opponent’s work, their reaction, we have to value that, it leaves a bittersweet, bitter aftertaste, because we had control of the game and a 2-0 advantage and, in five minutes, we called everything into question.
Coaches who are in European competitions, like me, complain about having too many games and wear and tear, others say we have more routines; those who rest say that they lack games and I say that they have a lot of time to work and prepare the games, it’s watering in the wet.
The team had a very good physical behavior.
The closing of the market will be beneficial for Gil Vicente and for all the teams because of the expectation and instability it creates in athletes, who have the natural ambition to improve their lives. It creates anxiety and, as the market closes, we will stop that. Players can enter and leave until the market closes, these are things I don’t control”.
