Vítor Campelos: «The draw was proof of the resilience and belief of the team»


Declarations by Vítor Campelos, coach of Desportivo de Chaves, after the draw against Vizela (2-2), in a match for the first round of Group A of the League Cup, played this Tuesday at Estádio do Futebol Clube de Vizela.

“In the first half, we started very well, we scored and we could have scored more. We had an excellent situation in which Euller could have shot and decided to pass. Vizela ended up drawing. In the first half, we had more ball possession and control of the game. It was only fair that we were leading at half-time.

In the second half, Vizela entered better and was on top. We missed a lot of passes. When you miss too many passes, you allow your opponent to galvanize. When we were going to make substitutions to change things, we were outnumbered. We had to readjust the team so that, even in numerical inferiority, we had the goal in our eyes. We conceded 2-1, but we always believed it was possible [alcançar pontos] and we reached, fairly, the tie.

It was important to give opportunity to players who have played less often, like Habib Sylla, Obiora, João Queirós and Patrick. The League Cup serves for that very purpose, to give players less used or who have been injured.

This team has been demonstrating, since the first round, that it is confident, that it likes to play good football. We are satisfied with the 19 points in the championship at matchday 13. We could have more, but the team is confident. The draw was proof of the team’s resilience and belief. It gave us a point, which keeps everything open for the League Cup”.
