On Saturday, Ruben Amorim previewed the match with SC Braga (Sunday, 18 hours), counting the opening day of the league. Asked about the start of the season against an opponent of this caliber, the Sporting coach was ambitious.
“We have a difficult match with SC Braga, but we also had a very difficult preparation period to prepare for a season that will be difficult. We took the opportunity to prepare for the first match, which is the next and the most important. It will be a difficult start to the tournament. [segue-se receção ao Rio Ave e visita ao FC Porto]But it can also be very good. We have the ability to beat any team in Portugal and if we focus on what we are going to do in every game, and not think about the second or third, we can really give a good answer. So when I looked at the calendar, what I thought might be a good start.”
As for the goals of that time, Robin Amorim was definitive.
“The goals are determined by the greatness of the club. We are entering the third year of work, we want to be competitive and we will fight for titles, especially in Portugal. We are also in the Champions League and we want to go through the group stage again, even though we belong to the third pot, It has to be match after match.”
