Robin Amorim satisfied with pre-season for Juneيون
Ruben Amorim, after the victory over Angers (2-0), admitted that Sporting Lisbon had some difficulties in overcoming the French team, but, nevertheless, he was satisfied with the pre-season test.
“It was a tough match against a team at a good pace. We knew the difficulties we were going to face, whether physical or tactical, and we wanted to see some things, without focusing too much on studying the opponent. I was a bit tired,” said the coach, speaking of the first goal – Gonzalo Inacio’s goal. The players and that those who came from the national team still lack the rhythm, but we will have time to prepare them for the Super Cup.” Which came from a free kick: “It is thanks to the technical team that makes these moves and it is good to know that we managed to score. From free kicks without Seba [Coates]. There are more threats.”
In this sense, at the end of the third preparation match included in the training period that runs until Wednesday, in the Algarve, coach Leonino said he gave a “very positive assessment” of these 10 working days: “Not for the sake of results, because this is less important and because we won Day 2. -0 and it was not our best match, but I am very happy with the behavior of my players. We continue with the group very united and we just have to make some adjustments because they have grown up, today they are international and they are desirable.”
“I think we’ve had excellent training and now it’s time to move on,” he said, adding, however, “there are always things to improve.”
Ruben Amorim also spoke about the reinforcements of Robin Vinagre and Ricardo Esgaio, but he highlighted other names: “Our idea is clear and we want to prepare for the future. We still don’t know who can leave and that’s why we have to get everything ready. I’m happy with Vinagre and Esgio, but I won’t forget Esteves – Nadi’s work Sporting Lisbon is doing very well in that direction – nor is Dario Isogo, to whom we have to give credit for the way he is growing.”
“Sporting Lisbon are in good health, but of course they will suffer and we will see that against foreign teams with different dynamics, but that is what these kids need,” he said, ending: “The group is more or less the same as last year and we have a lot of interest in who we bring in. Our players are more We have matured, but we know it will be a more difficult year. However, I am very happy with these challenges because I know the team needs this to grow.”
