Ball – Ruben Amorim: defeat, take care of Edwards and punish Nuno Santos (Sporting)

In the press conference analyzing the 1-2 loss to Braga, Sporting coach Robin Amorim, after giving his view on the same match, commented on some individual issues regarding his players.

On Sporting’s interest in Vitoria de Guimarães striker Marcos Edwards, the coach was calm: “There is no more or less urgent need to be appointed.” [Marcus Edwards], there is no rush. We lost two games, more than last year and it would be really bad to say something completely different. We are playing better than last season, but there are things we don’t control.”

And about stopping winger Nuno Santos, Robin Amorim said: “I have no regrets [de ter abordado publicamente o comportamento do jogador em Vizela]. But I would still say it helped with the punishment and when I talked about the pictures, I meant the confusion. Then, in other photos, you can see Nuno [Santos] Touch near the pants. Submit your photos, Nono [Santos] He says he didn’t play there [nos genitais, apontado ao público vizelense] And I believe in a player.”

On the fact that Daniel Braganca was not used in this match, with Mateus Nunes back in the starting line-up and playing for 90 minutes, Ruben Amorim explained: «Mateus [Nunes] He plays for his style of play, with the ability to push the ball forward. Danny [Daniel Bragança] I played the last role, Matthews played this, it’s a management that we do. [Daniel Bragança] I didn’t participate because I understood that Mateus was doing well in the game, because I understand that whoever has the ability to go forward is the closest to winning and that was also how Ugarte replaced her. [João Palhinha]. »

As for Pedro Gonçalves’ performance, the coach was categorical: “He played a great match. He scored one goal and missed two goals, that’s part of a player’s life. It was better than it was with Santa Clara.”

As for the fact that Sporting will travel to Estádio do Dragão in three rounds to face leaders FC Porto, and how decisive this match could be, Rúben Amorim prefers to consider at once: “The decisive match with Belenenses SAD because we cannot lose points in the next match. This team is not used to being at a disadvantage [na classificação]He started in a hurry, because he knows he can’t lose more points and that’s something we have to work on. The coach and the players have to go through this. We grow with it, it’s part of football.”
