″Removing Sporting from title fight is completely premature″

Speech by Portuguese coach Pedro Martins in the mixed zone of the World Scout Congress.

Pedro Martins, the coach who has managed Olympiacos for the last four seasons and left early this season after coaching Maritima, Rio Ave and Vitória de Guimarães, was at the World Scout Congress this Thursday that takes place at the hotel. in Porto, being one of the members of the game time group, along with Armando Evangelista, coach of Arouca, and Thiago Madureira, executive director of the League of Portugal.

In the mixed zone, Pedro Martins started by talking about the difference in mentality between what happens in the Portuguese and Greek championships and the European Games.

Thinking difference: “Greece is worse than Portuguese football. This is a matter of culture. When we go to international games we get into the spirit of putting on good shows and playing good games knowing that there is no defense and management of the games and strategies that players are used to with coaches, there are a few things that change from that and when they give up from their championships, namely the championship of Portugal, which we are talking about, and this is the most important thing, there are significant changes, because this culture has existed for many years.”

Analysis of the championship of Portugal: Benfica hired well, in addition to his coach who was right, he was looking for players with a profile with which he would like to be part of the team, I think they approached the market wisely, Benfica’s structure is fruitful at the moment Braga, Arthur Jorge, is doing an absolutely exceptional job, in the Portuguese Championship and in European competitions, I take my hat off to him, we have data from another coach who can be successful, who has quality and I hope he will do what what he did when he joined Braga two years ago and ended the season on a good note, and once again shows that he is a competent coach. Porto and Sporting still have the right to vote in the championship, Sporting did not start well. Porto have been in very similar situations before, they were in that situation last season and ended up as champions, it’s still very early. At this stage, Benfica and Braga were the most competent.”

Isn’t it premature to withdraw Sporting from a title fight? “Completely. The championship is not yet at the beginning, there is still a lot to be written. I see four teams so far, any of which can become a champion, honestly.”

INE statistics show that families spend the most.

“We buy too much, we buy bad, we let it go bad. It is unacceptable that a third of what is produced ends up in the trash,” the official said, speaking at a debate organized by the United Movement Against Waste.

Ana Cristina Carrola of the Portuguese Environmental Protection Agency (APA), who also took part in the debate, stressed that the average amount of waste per year per inhabitant in the European Union is 173 kg, less than the 183 kg that is thrown away by the Portuguese.
