FC Porto – Conceição

“We deserved more than a draw. But we do not live on moral victories. We have to do more to win the matches. We are the champions, but that is already finished. We have to do more in many moments of the match. There was a general behavior that wasn’t bad, but there were moments I didn’t like. But that is also part of this whole turmoil. Sporting is probably happy, I’m not. The responsibility is mine, but when the base eleven started to feel tired, they saw the difference between who was in and who was out. Players need time to understand FC Porto’s identity.”

“I am disappointed with the result. FC Porto can’t come to Alvalade and be happy with the draw. There is no “me”, it is us.”

Sporting CP – Amorim

“Apart from a few moments in the first half, Sporting was the better team. We had moments when it was clear where the space was, but we didn’t take advantage. We were a team of Lions. The players gave everything. If we had lost, I would be here to say the same thing. I am very proud, but we have to be new Lions again next week. We lost two points.”

“Of course, it had an influence on the result. It’s a penalty for us. We are unlucky with the VAR.”
