We want to continue on the winning path. [Jorge Jesus] He is not a ghost. He’s a very good coach, and he’s shown that throughout his career. He has always shown his quality and passion, just as I will also try to express myself,” he said.

Paulo Sousa also spoke about the termination of the controversial contract with the Polish Federation. “I’ve always been very focused on my decisions.
