“No coach likes to lose, and now the feeling of defeat is different. There are many things to improve in this club, in all departments. When you lose, there is only one person who bears responsibility: the coach. I bear this responsibility but “internally, there are people They have to take responsibility to be a strong club,” said Sergio Conceição after the home defeat to Estoril.
The Porto coach explained that the Dragon team could have “score five or six goals,” but after missing a penalty kick and failing on several occasions, “their ineffectiveness was noticeable.” “We are in a cycle of many difficult matches, where we always have to win,” he said.
Conceição also addressed the issue of the wounded. “I never apologize to those absent, but here we are with five to 10 injured. I make changes so we can win every three days, but today was one of those days where we could be here for another hour of play. The ball ended up not going in.”
The coach admitted that the second half was worse than the first. “The opponent is gaining confidence and we are making decisions that are not the best. It is the history of the game and we define this history. We are stronger on an individual level, but the symbol does not play a role, we need to put that quality on the field.”
