Moreno Teixeira: «We missed one of the goals of the season»

Statements by Moreno, coach of Vitória de Guimarães, after the draw against BSAD (2-2), in a match for the second round of Group F of the League Cup.

“We missed one of our objectives at the time, which was to reach the ‘final four’. We had a positive input from us. We managed to get to the advantage, which is sometimes the most difficult thing. In the defensive process, in which we have been strict throughout the season, we were not so sure and allowed opportunities to BSAD. In other games, we didn’t create as many opportunities as in this one, but we managed to finish.

It’s a bad day for us. We have to work on the mistakes. We have to play the third game [com o Boavista]because we know the club we represent, and to prepare the month of January, with many games.

We have not deviated from the project we talked about in July. We have young people coming from training and others coming from other clubs. We thought this was the moment for these athletes to play [sete jogadores com menos de 23 anos titulares]🇧🇷 The BSAD goalkeeper was competent, and we didn’t get a goal that would allow us to reach the third game with the qualification open. We don’t prepare athletes for the future by putting them two or three minutes into each game. If they have to play in the next game, they play again.

We were forced to change systems because, for these two games, we only had two centrals available [Tounkara e Bamba]🇧🇷 Jorge Fernandes was already fit for today, but it was rash to put him on. We have been more successful in [sistema tático] ‘3-4-3’ [do que em ‘4-3-3’, hoje utilizado], but we have to use the tactical system depending on the available players. We have to understand what is best for each game.

We cannot drop any athlete, whoever he may be. The Victorians have to be disappointed, and even angry with Vitória’s coach, but never with the athletes, because, as long as they have this posture, they will always have a coach to defend them”.
