Sérgio Conceição is not very concerned about the changes that FC Porto’s squad may undergo in the transfer market. Without speaking to the press since April 26, the coach, who renewed for the club until 2024, had not yet commented, for example, on the departure of Moussa Marega.
The Malian, a key player in Sergio’s four years as coach of FC Porto, is not part of the plan for the next three, after having left Dragão, at no cost, to sign for Al Hilal.
“There will be other Marega who will fit in the FC Porto team”, says the coach, in a light tone. Sérgio Conceição stresses that Marega “played because she had quality, she didn’t play because she was tall and nice”. “He was tall, but not nice,” he added humorously.
With this comment, the coach wanted, once again, to overlap the collective with the individual and show that he is prepared for the challenge of taking on a squad with some changes, “relativizing these movements to focus on the most important”.
As a matter of fact, Sérgio confirms that “another player will come out”. “It’s a challenge to reinvent ourselves. We’re going to have different players. We are a team with certain characteristics that make Porto a competitive and strong team,” he adds.
The coach guarantees, “aware of the difficulties”, that his goal is for the team to “play the best way”. “The best way, sometimes, may not be the prettiest for those who like cinema and circus, but it’s the best way to win”, he concludes.
Sérgio Conceição, 46 years old, renewed his contract with FC Porto, for another three seasons, until June 2024. He is already the coach with the longest consecutive time ahead of the Dragons. In four seasons, he won two national champion titles, a Portuguese Cup and two super cups.
