Carlos Carvalal struggled to leave Jamor with three points, reaching 22 games without conceding in the league, versus Belenenses SAD who can’t give up the Red Lantern. In response to the victory, the coach of Minho defended Paulo Sergio, the coach of Portimonense, and also spoke about the future.
“We looked for the goal from the start, the way Belenenses Sade played, more directly, it led us to interpret the match and get more ball after just 20 minutes, then we were correcting positions and we were able to get more ball and match. We didn’t play alone, we knew it was going to be difficult, the changes in the first half were meant to give more movement to the wings, we created more chances and we were the more dangerous team that was always closer to winning. We have achieved three points more than last year in this round and we will try to reach the third best record in the club’s history and give seriousness to the competition, at a time when everything is in question. I didn’t want to be in the position of Paolo Sergio, having to respond to a situation like that. There is no discipline board, nor a chairperson, who can interfere with the management that coaches do for teams. We, the coaches, are the ultimate authority to manage the team, if that is questioned, we lose the authority, and that’s all that is needed,” he emphasized, in comments at Quick interview Give Sports TV.
When asked about his future, Carlos Carvalhal was calm: “I have a contract until the end of the season, and I fulfill it with dedication to SC Braga, from morning to night thinking about how to make the team win, otherwise, no I’m worried. I don’t have anything specific, out of respect for everyone.” The club, the players and the management.”
