The state of the Light Tunnel in the 2009/10 season, which left the Blues and Whites deprived of Hulk and Sabonaro for most of the season, is remembered by Pinto da Costa as “the most shameful event in Portuguese football history”.
The Porto club president pointed the finger at those responsible for the league, specifically Ricardo Costa and Hermenio Loreiro. “They are associated with the greatest shame in Portuguese football. It’s a dark and shameful episode, it’s hard for me to say the names of these gentlemen, because what they did is unheard of,” he insisted in a new episode of Information. The ‘Ironias do Destino’ series, then seized the opportunity to target the main referee and VAR at Moreirense-FC Porto (1-1), in the previous edition of the league: “The tournaments have always been known by the name since the time of the Calapotty tournament.. the tunnel tournament and this [2020/21] It’s going to be like starring Hugo Miguel and Antonio Nobre.”
Returning to linking 2010 with the modern era, Pinto da Costa praised sports justice: “Whatever justice that is being done today is determined in the same week, the Hulk took enough time to play 17 games and in the end they checked who gave him the same amount. They could, which was Three Punishment Games.
Also in 2010, the president began building one of the most winning teams in history. “We went to get Villas Boa and it was considered a risky move, but I believed in it,” said the leader of the Dragons, who had already begun releasing the episode in reference to 2011, which sparked a lot of controversy. He had a guarantee of record in the light [ver mais na pág. 31]. “That was in 2011, but it all started in 2010 with the formation of the team and the arrival of Vilas Bois, who, upon arrival, said they were in the dream chair, but then there were other values and the dream the chair was empty,” he concluded.
