Ruben Amorim stayed away from the controversy surrounding the match between Portimonense and Porto, as Paulo Sergio managed to avoid several regulars and ended up crushing the Dragon (7-0).
“The Portimonense coach has the right to choose the players he understands in every match, and I choose the players. The truth is that Paulo Sergio reached his goal (the province) and we were aiming for the title and we didn’t get it. I will not comment on these situations when every coach has the right to choose the players he wants for his matches. I will not interfere, we are ready to face any player Portimonense offers”, he said in the preview of the match in the Algarve, scheduled for Saturday.
“It will be a difficult match, against an opponent who is difficult to defend and has strong transfers. They played here (at Alvalad) with four central defenders and now they can’t do that because one is hanging and the other is on the left. There will be some changes, not in the idea, but in the characteristics of the players. We studied the opponent and are ready for the match. We came from a good moment, scored many goals, but we cannot suffer from a few shots from the opponent. He concluded that we wanted to improve in relation to the last game (4-1 win over Gil Vicente”.
