A BOLA - Pinto da Costa is optimistic about the new season (FC Porto)

With the closure of pre-season preparations, Pinto da Costa in this month’s issue of Dragões highlighted the optimism with which he welcomes the new season, including thanks to the return of fans to the stadiums.

“The moment a new season starts is always special. This is the time when there is no past, but only the future. This is a time of dreams, hopes and high expectations. And at Porto we only think about winning. In this case, in order to become national champions again, continue to have good Champions League campaigns and fill our magnificent museum with as many trophies as possible. The optimism with which I look at the new season is based (not only, but also) on the preparation period, when the team gave very good signals. The weeks of work in Olivale and the Algarve have confirmed that we have an excellent group, full of good values, which gives guarantees for the present and the future and which is very well managed by a technical team, ”writes the leader of FC Porto, stressing afterwards:

“I know, of course, that communication between fans and FC Porto is not only provided through television, computers or mobile phones. It is in all our homes, in the Dragau stadium, and in all the fields in this country that Porto players are now eager to visit. Fortunately, this will finally be possible from the first round of this championship. And this is another reason for me to be optimistic. Dragons are much stronger together. “

Eriksen set to return to Premier League after panic



Eriksen set to return to Premier League after panic


Danish international to strengthen Brentford, British press assures

After a big scare set by Christian Eriksen at Euro 2020, the 29-year-old midfielder is about to complete his return to the competition and soon to the Premier League.

The English newspaper The Sunday Mirror guarantees that Eriksen will strengthen 14th-placed Brentford in the next 72 hours, simply by skipping the club’s routine medicals.

Eriksen has spent the last few days training with the Ajax team in order to get back to perfect pace as soon as possible and do his part for the bees.

Eriksen has been a free player on the market since 17 December, when Inter announced the sacking of a Danish international who was banned from Serie A due to having a cardiac defibrillator implanted to control any anomalies.

The player went into cardiac arrest in a Euro 2020 group stage match between Denmark and Finland and has some doubts about whether he can return to professional football. Panic appears to be a thing of the past as Eriksen is about to move to the second English club of his career after a successful run at Tottenham Hotspur between 2013 and 2019.

Fine: “I didn’t see it, I won’t comment. The game changed after the penalty, but only after it.”

Previous games: “The result should have been different. This is football. In the first half, the chances were ours. In the second half, the game was controlled. We were the ones who couldn’t connect. We won. This time it was the other way around.”

Nuno Santos: “No regrets. Words helped punishment. When I spoke about images, they were images of confusion. Other images were arranged. Nuno Santos did not turn to the audience. I spoke to the player. I saw your images. Nuno said that was not made public. We We can close the case about Nuno’s genitals, if you agree.”

Braganca: “Matheus went after the game he played, for his ability to hit everywhere. Braganza played last. It depends on the characteristics. In broken games, Matheus has an advantage. I preferred Ugarte, changing the characteristics with Palinha. It works, otherwise not.
