32-year-old Luis Pinto has coached Leça with absolute success, leading Serie A to the Portuguese championship and putting the fourth-tier team in the Portuguese Cup quarter-final, a tribute to history and Leceiro’s paper. It earned giant cemetery status by removing Arauca and Gil Vicente from the Jamor access test, and now Sporting isn’t just a media boon. Semi-finalists live in the mind.
Let’s try, let’s do everything to make this possible. We have a knockout track with a lot of ambition and the ability to be overcome by these players. We will try to do the same with much respect for the opponent. But we want to continue to make history and eliminate another team from the league,” warned Luis Pinto, expressing his regret that the match was not played at Leça da Palmeira due to the emotional charge.
“A little bit of the nature of the competition has been removed, with a little kid looming in his house. We have very sad fans and we feel that too. But let’s pass on the possibilities we will have at Leça to Paços de Ferreira. It is not this transformation of the game that will take away the possibility of discussing the match from us. The result ”, explained the young coach, trying to feel the feelings of Lyon.
“What can worry Sporting? If they go to penalties, if they go to penalties, they worry!” he joked, always wearing a very relaxed face.
“On the other hand, there is a technical team that has already passed these levels, and that makes them know what is happening here these days. It is the time when the quality of the players can be shown, and the quality of the staff can be shown. The club is being talked about again by a lot of people and in these moments it is clear that all of this can catapult the players into one last race, the last stand and other levels of focus. All these moments can help you get through. Luis Pinto confirmed that the Sporting technical team, two years ago, was at Casa Bella knowing that there will be ambition and desire in this aspect to continue making history.
