Sérgio Conceição: «We should have gone into the break with a result other than 0-0»


Statements by Sérgio Conceição, coach of FC Porto, after the victory against Desportivo de Chaves (2-0), in a match for the 2nd round of Group A of the League Cup.

“It was a different game, competent from our team, with a strong entry into the game. In the first 30 minutes we had three or four chances to score. Then, from then on, it is true that the [Desportivo de] Chaves balanced the game, he had one or two approaches, a chance to score, but I think we should have gone into the break with a result other than 0-0.

The second part, very difficult to [Desportivo de] Keys to arrive, because we hit one or another important position there when we had the ball, to [que] when we lost her we didn’t suffer, [com] the opponent’s transitions. I think we did a good 45 minutes and it’s a fair victory.

[Quartos de final] It is an important victory, but our passage to the quarters is not yet complete, not least because we have the game against Vizela, a team that has demonstrated quality, individual and collective quality. Now, [com a vitória] [estou] rested and prepared for this game with Vizela, this one decisive to move on to the quarterfinals.

It was important to win. We knew that, winning, we would be even more dependent on what our game with Vizela would be like, but mainly, [não queríamos] enter the way we entered the game with Mafra. Nowadays, even with teams at a lower level, there is quality, in the squads, in the technical teams and I never get tired of saying it”.
