Sérgio Conceição, the renovation of Fábio Vieira and the Fortnite


Sérgio Conceição stressed, this Friday, that he is not guided by the duration of the players’ contracts, but by quality. Still, he admitted that it is something that gives comfort, especially to young people.

At a press conference, Sérgio was asked about the evolution of Fábio Vieira, who renewed his contract with FC Porto until 2025, after having, like other youngsters in the squad, heard harsher words from the coach since his debut for the first team. . The answer started with a touch of humor and a reference to a well-known video game.

“The young and even the less young these days, no matter how hard it is, on the same night, with Fortnite and other things, it’s already lost. It has to do with the daily work, the daily demands and the mingling of the message of what is important to be successful in football. They have technical quality, but there are also other very important situations in their game and that’s what we try to get through,” stressed the coach.

Although the players, at an emotional level, are “clearly pleased” with the renewal, Sérgio stressed that he has to be coherent in his speech:

“I can’t say I’m very happy with a renewal and at the next conference say I don’t look at contracts. I have several players ending contracts this year and it hasn’t been a rule to look at that. Usually I don’t. If it’s here, great. : we will work with it and use it according to our needs. Anyway, the club is doing a very good job in that direction. Fábio is not the first young man to renew, but he doesn’t renew because he is young, but yes for having the quality to be part of the main squad of FC Porto.”

Changes in spot eleven

Sérgio Conceição previewed FC Porto’s reception of Feirense, of the II League, counting for the fourth round of the Portuguese Cup.

The stoves are “very motivated”, also the result of leading the race to rise to the top level, and have “a well-defined game idea”, which the FC Porto coach does not expect will change.

FC Porto had several players in the teams and, four days after Feirense, it visits Liverpool, for the Champions League. Taking these two aspects into account, Sérgio Conceição admitted making changes to the team.

“The players come from different contexts and behaviors in the teams. Some play, which is good, others don’t do it for a minute. They come at different levels and this management is not easy. It often forces us to use those who had more time to prepare the game. We also have to take into account the physical capacity of each player. There are players who are at the limit or in doubt,” he pointed out.

For example, Marcano left training and it will be “difficult to make his contribution”. Pepe is “having difficulties” and Wendell, although recovered, “still isn’t at 100%” in terms of confidence after “a very annoying injury”.

FC Porto-Feirense, in the fourth round of the Portuguese Cup, is scheduled for Saturday, at 20:15, at Estádio do Dragão. Live report on Renaissance and up-to-the-minute follow-up in rr.sapo.pt.
