BALL - "What Sergio Conceição did, no other coach could do" (FC Porto)

Jorge Costa, former center and captain of FC Porto, in an interview Radio Renaissancepraised Sergio Conceição after winning the double and considers it normal for foreign clubs to be interested in Porto’s current helmsman, namely Paris Saint-Germain.

“What Sergio Conceição has done, no other coach has been able to do. With the same people, but without the competence and, above all, the demands of Sergio Conceição, Porto would not be what it is,” praised the coach, who currently does not own a club.

Jorge Costa illustrates the evolution of some blue and white players: “Otavio, Pepe, Diogo Costa, Vitinha could be in the same squad and in the same context, but with Sergio Conceição they are one thing, and without him they are completely different.” Jorge Costa said. Costa continued: “Among all those who played an important and decisive role in these conquests, and I know what I’m talking about, the great culprit is Sergio Conceição.”

As for the future Porto manager, with two more years on his contract and President-appointed Pinto da Costa to continue in charge of the Blue and Whites, Jorge Costa commented on the interest of several clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain: He [Sérgio Conceição] he has this natural ambition, and he cannot be condemned. He is a desirable coach. The appearance of interested persons and proposals is normal, but they will not affect you, because you are used to it. He is a Porto fan, works his soul and body at FC Porto and is in demand like few others. If the club lives up to his level of demand, Sergio will be Porto’s manager for many more years to come.”

Gallardo: Enzo Fernandez's future is 'uncertain' - Benfica



With the Libertadores millionaires eliminated, the midfielder has doors open for a Benfica buff, but the River manager adds ambiguity to the speech

Following River Plate’s elimination from the Copa Libertadores at the feet of Vélez Sarsfield, midfielder Enzo Fernández left his doors open to leave Buenos Aires for Lisbon to strengthen Benfica ahead of the start of the new season. However, in statements at a post-match press conference on Thursday, Marcelo Gallardo, River Plate manager, said the midfielder’s future is not fully decided, unlike his teammate, who made his last appearance for the Millionaires. “[Palavras para Julian Álvarez e Enzo Fernández, que cumpriu hoje, muito provavelmente, o último jogo pelo River antes de se mudar para o Benfica?] Well, the case of Enzo Fernandez is not clear, not clear. I will say yes to Julián because it was his last game for him. I will tell you the same thing that I told him in person and then in the presence of his companions. For me, it is a source of great pride that I had the opportunity to coach him, to share in these years of growth that he had, and his football evolution. Today he moves to one of the biggest teams in the world. This makes me very happy and is a source of pride for me as I have seen him grow up and work hard. He has shown not only to me but to all Argentine football that he deserves the opportunity he has and I have no doubt that he will become an elite player, in fact he already is. He is a great boy, a great professional and I wish him and his family all the best,” said the millionaires coach, not to mention the situation with the midfielder, who has an agreement to move to Lush.

“The expectation is always the same: to give our club the best and try to improve on what we did last year. This is our mission because we want to be healthy, bring joy to our fans and enjoy what we love to do. This is a year that will require a lot from everyone, and we are confident that we will manage. We will work for this and be able to respect our shirt,” the defender said, referring to the club’s website.

On the challenges they will face: “We are aware and confident that we have to be beaten for being champions last year, so we have to work very well. As I said, we need to improve on what we did last year. We have the Champions League, a competition where we want to celebrate our club and Portugal. We must work hard and with great enthusiasm to live until the end of the year happy.”

Pepe is still ready for next season, even at the age of 39: “First of all, it is the result of the luck I had to be at a great club like Porto where people work spectacularly. The coach demands a lot from us, he always makes sure that we can be at our best level in training. Even when we are not in Olivala, he requires us to try to be at our best, staying focused even when we are at home. That is why this demand from him (Sergio Conceição) helps me a lot to be at this level and to be at Porto, which gives me all the conditions to do my job.”
