As a fan, I hope I can reach many more. As of Tuesday I will only speak in exceptional cases. I wish success to the new management who have a difficult road ahead of them. In Porto, what It is difficult to solve, and what is impossible takes a little longer. “Tomorrow is my last day at work, and I still have a lot to do,” he said.

Pinto da Costa also admits that “everything is delivered calmly and harmoniously” so that André Villas-Boas can do his job. He added: “All the problems are known to the current management of the club. Everything will be calm, and they will have my full support, but I will not comment on anything.” In the end, he knows that 42 years of leadership have been worth it: “At least I will leave FC Porto with many victories.”
