Statements by Jesualdo Ferreira, coach of Boavista, after the defeat against Nacional (0-1), in a game of the 18th round of the Portuguese First League of football.
“Boavista played a good game and was always on top. Nacional’s own coach acknowledged that we were better in all statistics, but we were unable to score and we suffer as we suffer.
I went to the dressing room to congratulate my players. I told them that, while they are here, it is important that they always play like this, with this attitude and offensive spirit, be able to discuss the game with any team and really want things to come.
It is not very normal what is happening to Boavista. In all games, there are always events that are difficult to explain. I have nothing to point out to my players, but there are times when more serenity and better decision-making are needed.
This has a lot to do with the history of Boavista since the beginning of the era. There are all the conditions for Boavista to reach the points necessary for its objective. It is required in all games that athletes work and do what they did today.
Boavista made 14 shots inside the opponent’s area. He got there, stayed there and was able to create situations, but we couldn’t score any goals. When things were entering that critical moment, 15 minutes from the end, we were left with 10 [expulsão de Javi García, aos 74].
We lost two games at home the way we lost. You know what happened in Tondela, don’t you? And with Santa Clara? It is not easy to influence players for a certain type of game when nothing happens that is in line with the ultimate goal.
There are times when I feel that they want a lot and others when they reveal anguish and discouragement. This was one of the defeats that cost me the most, but since Tondela, we have had a series of games that have been cut with a clear line of team development ”.
