Estrella da Amadora coach confirmed that his plans include the continuity of the Angolan in the team; With some markets still open, it ensures preparation for any unexpected events and possible exit from the central bank
The press conference reviewing Estrela da Amadora's short trip to the Estoril stronghold – just 22 kilometers away – included the final closure of the market, with entries, exits, stays and… uncertainties.
The biggest issue is the continuity of Kialunda Gaspar, who, like Manuel Ciliano, ended his participation in the African Cup of Nations due to Angola’s withdrawal from the quarter-finals of the competition, and will return to Ribolera in the next few days.
Although the European market has already closed, other latitudes are still open for registration, with South America or Asia particularly emerging, and the central player may still leave Estrela. However, Sergio Vieira is not worried.
The coach said: “Regarding Gaspard and Kyliano, they are two players who have a contract with us so far, two players we rely on and who have quality. They are players who participated in the African national team competition.”
Regarding the central defender, in a more realistic way, the coach showed that he is ready for any unexpected situation, but he reinforced that, even otherwise, he is an Estrella player and will be at his disposal. He repeated: “I am counting on him, because he has a contract.”
Facing the Tricolor's next opponent, Estoril, Sergio Vieira expects a balanced duel. “Between two teams there are always factors that tend to one side or the other in theory. In practice, we never know and it will depend on the moment,” said the amateur coach, who assumed that the arrival of new elements in the last few days would make it possible to offer different solutions at the tactical level. Analyzed.
The second part of the season could, at strategic moments, come with derivatives, and Sergio Vieira has indicated that this would be nothing new. He added: “We had boldness in many matches this season and last season, which proves that.”
“We will try to do it, always in a responsible way, if we understand that this is the best way to win,” the Tricolores coach finally promised for the rest of the season and Sunday's match in Amoreira.
